Teaching for global competencies workshop Sept. 19

31 Aug 2015    

In a globalization era, what constitutes “global competencies” in education?  What understandings and professional skills will nurture educators' innovative growth and enhance student learning? Supported, in part, by a generous Humanities Nebraska grant, a cross-institutional professional development experience will take place from 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 19 at Henzlik Hall on UNL's City Campus. At "Teaching for Global Competencies: What are the Challenges and Opportunities?," UNL and Nebraska Wesleyan pre-service students, graduate students and Nebraska in-service educators will explore and deepen understanding of 21st century competencies, engage professional dialogue reinforcing theoretical, philosophical and practical professional development, and gain global education classroom resources. The workshop aims to reach a full range of educators; all grade levels and subject areas will find relevance. The workshop is free. A continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. Register today.
