The staff and student-led activities and events typically include:
These run from 10 am – 3 pm each day in a central location on each campus. These can be either country or culture specific, or run by a society, organisation, or professional services. Depending on the region of the day and the theme of the stall, these can run for a single day to the full week. We would like these to be as interactive as possible, so please think of ways to engage the visitors (either by involving them in a game, a quiz, a challenge… let your imagination fly)!
Want to show off your skills and moves? Put on a performance of drama, dance, music, sport on our “global stage”. These can be themed to the regional day, or run at a lunchtime or afternoon / evening. Let us know what you’re thinking, and we will find a slot for you.
Teach fellow students and staff a new skill. Whether it is to play drums, pronounce words in a different language, create beautiful arts and crafts, meditate or learn a new sport, all ideas are welcome! These can run at any time throughout the week.
Talks, lectures and debates
Are you passionate about a topic and want to share and discuss it with other students and staff? Why not put on an event? These can run at any time throughout the week.
Internationalising the curriculum
If you’re NTU academic staff, then this is the perfect opportunity to bring a global theme to your subject. You can bring in a global element to the module, use global case studies, or look at the subject in a global context.
Languages are a big part of culture, and thus an important part of Global Week. We are looking to run language themed events throughout the week. These could be a Language Café style event where you can practise languages with other students, a taster of a specific language, calligraphy / typology, language bingo or other games. You can integrate these into a cultural stall, or run a separate event – the world is your oyster!
These are just some examples of what has previously happened at Global Week, but any ideas are welcome.
So don’t wait, email us or come to the Global Lounges for more information on what to do next.
