About the 2022 Seminar:
This seminar is designed to develop global competencies in students across the nation by creating a cohort of diverse, globally competent, K-12 pre-service and new teachers prepared and inspired to teach about global topics. The Global Competency Cohort will start in Spring 2022 with synchronous orientation and asynchronous development of background knowledge supporting global competencies. The cohort will gather virtually in the Summer for intensive seminars featuring discussions with regional experts focusing on UN Sustainability Development Goals in the regions of East Asia, Eastern Europe/Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East. These 17 Global Goals are grouped into 5 Ps (People, Prosperity, Planet, Peace, and Partnership). During and after the Summer seminar, the cohort will develop teaching tools for use in the classroom. In Autumn 2022 a final speaker and networking session with in-service teachers will support feedback and discussion regarding challenges to classroom implementation.
The seminar is organized by the East Asian Studies Center (EASC), in partnership with the Center for African Studies (CAS), Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS), Center for Slavic, East European and Eurasian Studies (CSEEES), and the Middle East Studies Center (MESC), with support from the Longview Foundation and U.S. Department of Education Title VI Grants.
