For our first episode, host Patricia Demetriou talks about Global Education and its subtopics with Associate Professor Hilary Landorf of Florida International University and her assistant Yenisleidy Simon Mengana.
We will learn more about diversity and how to embrace it. We will also answer several questions including:
What is the right way to expose our children to living in a multicultural environment?
How to become a better citizen of the world?
How to connect with people from different parts of the world?
How do you create healthy relationships with others?
What are the subjects that our school system should teach our children, and the values and principles that our children should learn at home?
