Description: Students are entering a world that is more globally interconnected and complicated than ever before, yet often lack the knowledge, skills, and dispositions to effectively operate in that space. In this workshop, teacher candidates will learn the fundamentals of global education, and internationalization, and engage in activities to heighten awareness of how global competencies can be embedded in P-12 classrooms and learning. 

Learning goals: Students will develop curiosity and interest in the world’s cultures, communities, and contexts; Develop curriculum and pedagogical skills that enable teachers to incorporate international perspectives in their content area; Create connections to global and local complex challenges that impact the shared human experience.
