June 6 Symposium on Cross-Cultural Collaboration & Service Learning
In cooperation with the Center for Teaching & Learning
Schedule of Events
Cross-Cultural Collaboration - faculty roundtable discussion
10:30 AM - 12 PM
Trade stories and ideas with other Stanford faculty whose courses center on international collaboration. We will collectively generate a set of "promising practices" based on the group's experiences, as we strive to improve courses that cross borders and cultures—for students, faculty, and community partners alike.
Urban Sustainability Expo
12-5 PM (Location: Y2E2 Red Atrium)
Guided tours 12-1:30 PM
View urban sustainability projects jointly created by teams from Stanford and Tsinghua University. Issues include promoting walking and walkable streets, disseminating air pollution data to the public, facilitating energy-efficient green trucking practices, and re-imagining the youth hostel experience. (View detailed project descriptions).
The exhibits will remain in the atrium throughout Friday, but the live interaction with student teams will conclude at 1:30 PM.
