Bridges to the World Workshop
June 21 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
An event every 2 days that begins at 8:00 am, happening 3 times
Bridges to the World is a series of interactive workshops that examine the key elements of global education and explore a multitude of resources for educators to foster global competence in their classrooms. The professional development program trains a cohort of educators in middle and high school classrooms to become confident instructors in global education. The initiative offers educational resources and professional development opportunities for teachers in the realms of world affairs, geopolitical issues and U.S. foreign policy.
Participating teachers are required to attend three workshops. The workshops lead a cohort of participants through the four stages of global competency, using the Asia Society framework. Thanks to this framework, participants learn how to engage students in current events and international issues through investigating the world, recognizing the perspectives of others, communicating their ideas and taking action.
