Workshop: Global Competencies for Career Success, Powered by Teach to Lead

To celebrate International Education Week 2018, the U.S. Department of Education invites you to a “Global Competencies for Career Success” workshop aimed at helping educators incorporate global competencies into their career, technical, and STEM education programs. This “mini summit” powered by Teach to Lead will use teacher leadership as a key strategy in the development and implementation of logic models/action plans to empower teachers to lead change in their communities without having to leave the classroom.

Teachers, school administrators, and other stakeholders interested in adding or further developing global competencies into CTE and/or STEM programs are invited to participate in this one-day workshop. Teams comprised of 2-5 members must include, and be led by, at least one current teacher. During the workshop, teams will network with and get feedback from other teacher leaders and experts, partner with critical friends from the field of international education, have focused time for collaboration, and participate in targeted skills development sessions designed to increase project success. Certificate/credit will be offered upon completion.
