      FAQ

      What is the added value of the Global Mind Monitor? Why should I use it?

      The GMM gives insight in your Cultural Intelligence (CQ), Multicultural Personality (MPQ) and in your thoughts, feelings and actions when it comes to sustainability issues. Our model is inspired by the new PISA global competence framework developed by the OECD, that also links global competence to UNESCO’s Sustainable Development Goals. Students can fill out the monitor once or multiple times, to see their scores and development on these different topics. The results are very useful for reflection purposes with students and can be downloaded for use in portfolio’s and reports.

      I would like to try out the Global Mind Monitor to see if it could be of use for our students. Can I book a demo?

      We are happy to see you have an interest in the Global Mind Monitor and you are very welcome to try it out! Please send a mail to helpdesk@globalmind.info and we will set up a demo for you.

      How much does it cost to use the Global Mind Monitor in my university?

      Unfortunately in today’s world you don’t get something for nothing, and this also holds for the GMM. The price is calculated per invited student and is currently set at € 4,95 per invite. To give an example: in case you want to use the GMM longitudinally and want students to fill it out every year during the course of their studies it will cost 4 x € 4,95.

       

      My students do not go abroad. Can I still use the Global Mind Monitor?

      So-called ‘Global Minds’ can be developed in very different ways! A stay abroad is one of them, and indeed effective. But there are other ways to support the development of international and intercultural competence such as a culturally diverse classroom, regular international guest lecturers, cultural events such as an international week, virtual international collaboration, etc. So even when your students do not go abroad you can still use the Global Mind Monitor.      

      How much time do you need to fill out the Global Mind Monitor?

      It will take around 20-25 minutes to fill out the GMM. We know that sounds long, but it will be definitely worth your while!
