  • demonstrate inquiry-based learning and other innovative teaching methodologies  
  • explore the role of school administrators in supporting global learning among their immediate communities comprised of students, parents, teachers, and local communities
  • show how to meet the needs of ELLs through dual language programs
  • outline the most effective instructional strategies and technologies for successful language classrooms
  • offer lesson and project ideas for incorporating the SDGs in K12 education
  • discuss the role of the SDGs in higher education and teacher education programs
  • provide ideas for fostering stewardship of our planet through climate change education
  • showcase expeditionary learning opportunities, including virtual exchanges and study abroad, gap year, and service-learning programs

  • demonstrate technology-enhanced experiential learning tools
  • discuss higher ed global program evaluation, curriculum design, and related policies
  • present international education and development education research opportunities

If you have events and resources related to global education and innovation, please post details in our online community, and we’ll include this information in our following newsletter. We publish our newsletter on the first and fifteenth of each month. 

Thanks for reading,
