Global education leaders and teachers are invited to join us this summer for a time of learning, sharing, and collaboration. These three-day concurrent programs are designed to be interactive, inspiring, and practical. You will be given the tools you need to tackle the challenging work of educating informed and engaged global citizens. Attendees will form a supportive peer group to share ideas and best practices long after the symposium ends.
The GEBG Global Leadership Summer Symposium will focus on leadership development as facilitators offer practical advice and insights into leveraging your institution’s resources to build a high quality global program. All new global education program directors (with 1-5 years of experience in the position) who are interested in building their leadership acumen and furthering their collaborative work with internal and external school colleagues should plan to attend.
The GEBG Global Curriculum Summer Symposium will focus on designing and implementing global curriculum that will prepare our students to thrive in an increasingly complex world. Teachers from all disciplines and all grade levels, as well as curriculum leaders, will explore research around global competency frameworks and PBL as well as examples from schools around the country. Participants will leave with new curricular units designed to further individual school goals and to bring global citizenship into the classroom.
