|Title||Take the lead from students|
How can we connect our academic practice to raise students’ awareness of complex global issues? Shattering recent events like the Bastille Day in Nice, Paris in January 2015, Brussels in March 2016, Istanbul and Orlando attacks in June, the violence of ISIS, the referendum on Britain leaving Europe, and the migration of thousands of refugees eeing war, call into question the role of academic practice in universities. In this context, re ecting on learning theories that promote engagement can help us understand how students can become inspired as active citizens of the world.
