Nov. 14 Workshop at ED: Global Competencies for Career Success

On the occasion of International Education Week 2018, IFLE is organizing a mini-summit on November 14th at the U.S. Department of Education aimed at helping teachers and schools incorporate global competencies into their career, technical, and STEM education programs. This event is a joint initiative of IFLE, ED’s International Affairs Office, and ED’s Powered by Teach to Lead initiative.

We still have space available for more educators to attend this event, and we have extended our registration deadline through next Wednesday, November 7th. We are therefore asking for your help in distributing the invitation (attached) with your networks of teachers, schools, and school districts across the country.

This event is open to educators at all levels and from all types of institutions. Teams may be comprised of or include NRC staff members if the center would like to create or further develop a project to incorporate global competencies into local CTE and/or STEM programs. During the workshop, teams will develop logic models/action plans, 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.

Teams of 2-5 persons each (including at least one current teacher) may REGISTER THROUGH NEXT WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 7th AT: https://tinyurl.com/Nov14atED

Please note that this event will take place in Washington, D.C. at U.S. Department of Education headquarters. We are unable to provide direct support for travel, so associated expenses (transportation, lodging, etc.) are the responsibility of the participants.
