dc.description.abstract An authentic, empathetic, and mindful approach to the student experience is paramount to meeting the demands of the global education paradigm shift (de Rivera & Mahoney, 2018). Creating Comfort Across Cultures: Adapting to Shifts in Global Education examines empathy from a faculty and staff perspective. It explores the impact of empathy in higher education from curriculum design, to instructor course content delivery, and pedagogical practices. The presentation investigates how to engage diverse student populations through synchronous and asynchronous avenues focusing on student learning and retention, using empathy as a primary, strategic tool for connectedness, belonging, and success. Integrating immersive and diverse content and understanding students’ backgrounds and needs contributes to addressing them with humility, attention, and empathy (Gladwell, 2019). Presenters share current research, anecdotal evidence, best practices, global awareness, and relational integration understanding (Mitchem et al, 2020). Global awareness positively impacts “interconnections and concern in terms of empathy and understanding the importance of solidarity” (Global Education Network Europe, 2019, p. 23). Participants will leave the live session with a refreshed global education tenet. en_US
