Think Tank on Global Education: Empowering Global Citizens is coming soon. The application will open November 1, 2016.
Tuition: $995 per person
All students will face challenges and opportunities with global dimensions, therefore today’s educators must enable students to develop intercultural awareness, knowledge and perspectives on global issues, and multilingualism.
In this program, you will engage in the active and critical examination of global competency and the practice of global education. In collaboration with colleagues, you will work with Empowering Global Citizens: A World Course, a comprehensive and rigorous primary and secondary school curriculum and expand the material so that it applies to your context. You will also work with faculty and fellows to develop your own leadership strategy to advance global competency in schools.
The program is designed for all educators and education leaders committed to empowering global citizens. Teams and individuals are welcome to apply.
