The Global Competence Certificate was launched in 2014 with the goal of increasing the number of educators professionally trained to teach for global competence. GCC courses prepare educators to better understand global issues, teach for global competence, and facilitate students' development as globally informed, engaged citizens. As the program grew, there was a demand from teachers to enroll in single courses. In 2016, we introduced that option.
The next session of GCC courses will run January 23 - March 19, 2017. Register by January 10 for the following courses:
- Dialoguing in Global Education (January 23 - March 19)
