To introduce our Global Education Summit speakers to you, we asked them share with us what makes them proud as a global educator, what transforming education means to them, and how their work has changed in the past year.
For more than 20 years, Nathalie Rudner has been involved in global education and is proud to bring quality education to students of diverse backgrounds and experiences around the globe.
To her, transforming global education means empowering students to become global citizens who will change the world.
In the last year, her work has changed in many ways. She says, “For me, this last year during the pandemic has clearly highlighted the importance of ensuring that our students have the creative and critical thinking skills to generate solutions to global issues now and in the future. As such, my work over the last year has shifted to renewing focus on developing quality curriculum and ensuring that students have authentic opportunities to develop these skills.”
