How to Become a Global Educator: Teaching for Today’s World

Length: 90 minutes

Participants: Open to all educators and schools/districts.

Workshop Description & Objectives: Global education - it’s quite the education buzzword, but what does it actually mean? How should teachers and other education practitioners go about meeting the current moment and becoming global educators? In this interactive workshop, educators will be introduced to the “what” and “why” of global education and global competence, and explore the dispositions, knowledge, and skills needed to be a competent global educator. In order to achieve this, educators will learn to look inward as individuals, identifying personal global competence strengths and areas of improvement, as well as create an action plan for individual growth as a global educator.

By completing this session, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the “what” and “why” of global competence
  • Explain the dispositions, knowledge, and skills needed to be a competent global educator
  • Identify where they currently sit along a continuum of global educator dispositions, knowledge, and skills 
  • Identify areas for personal improvement and create an action plan for individual growth as a global educator
