Programming and Activities
CAPA’s unique My Global Education Program was developed to offer you, the student, a unique opportunity to make decisions about how you will learn about culture according to how you enjoy learning. Compiled by local CAPA education abroad advisers, the calendar offers a menu of different activities, events, volunteer opportunities, lectures, visits, and self-directed tours to help teach you the most about Sydney.
With My Global Education in Sydney, you and your new CAPA friends will be able to:
– Visit La Perouse to learn about boomerangs
– Take the coastal walk along Sydney Harbour
– See the night sky from an Aboriginal perspective at the Sydney Observatory
– Go explore Cockatoo Island
– Attend the Melbourne Cup
– And many more!
You will have the opportunity to choose from a range of activities with varying styles of presentation. This allows you to pick a session that speaks to you and your way of learning.
What will I be able to do with My Global Education?
CAPA presents a My Global Education Calendar to all students and faculty. The events, reflective sessions, and activities listed are designed around significant academic themes such as Diversity, Social Dynamics, Globalization and Urban Environments. Participation in these activities will give you an intelligent, well rounded, and in depth view of Sydney and Australia.
Some CAPA professors integrate My Global Education activities into their courses and assessment, so that you may have an opportunity to reflect upon, write about and present your experiences. My Global Education is also an excellent way to develop areas of interest that may be extended into an application for the CAPA Record of Achievement.
