Editor’s Note: The upcoming USAID Higher Education Global Evidence Summit reflects ongoing iteration of the GCC Global Competence Model as we continue the conversation started via the GCC blog in June 2021. Watch this space for a presentation summary after the Summit.
GCC will join members of the research community, development practitioners, and USAID staff at the inaugural USAID Higher Education Global Evidence Summit taking place virtually over three weeks in May 2022: May 3 & 4, May 10 & 11, and May 17 & 18.
Kate Moore and Naveen Shah will be sharing their presentation Connecting Employability and Education: Global Career Competency Frameworks on Wednesday, May 11 at 10:45am Eastern Time.
The full agenda for the three-week Summit is posted online at https://www.edu-links.org/HE-summit-2022. Presentations align with the three themes of the Summit: Innovation, Employability, and Private Sector Engagement.
In addition to presentations and lightning talks from diverse presenters, there will be keynote sessions from USAID Administrator Samantha Power, USAID Chief Scientist Ticora V. Jones, and other leaders in Higher Education and global development. The Summit will offer a unique opportunity to hear about emerging research, new data, trends, and promising practices in higher education as they relate to social and economic development.
