Beyond the English Language Classroom: How Teachers can help prepare Students for a Global Community Increasingly, our English language learners engage with a community on a global scale. How can we best prepare our learners for these new forms of communication and new challenges? While higher levels of English

language proficiency are important, as part of the global community, our learners as global citizens will be required to develop 21st-century skills, including being autonomous, confident, and able to think critically. In addition, our learners will need to be able to effectively manage large amounts of information, use technology efficiently, understand the cultural perspectives of others, and work collaboratively. While these skills can be incorporated into language and content programs, this also increases the expectations placed on students and instructors alike. This presentation will explore how integrating 21st-century skills in order to prepare learners for a global community has been successful in a variety of contexts. The presenter will also include effective approaches to help our learners achieve these skills, and strategies to overcome obstacles when trying to support learners through this process.
