GCD 2016 – Future Global Educators

For Global Collaboration Day – September 15, 2016, we – participants in a first year course for future teachers – FYI 100-section 18-Is Teaching for You? – would like to host a meet and greet for other future global educators and their teachers.

We call all college and university students interested in becoming teachers who use global connections to expand their classrooms to join us to see if we might connect further to enhance our own learning and teaching.  And we call on the teachers of these future global educators to join our discussion and explore developing curriculum to expand our teacher education programs’ global outreach.

We are planning to meet at 2 pm Eastern USA time on September 15, 2016 online through the Global Collaboration Day (GCD) events.  Link to the calendar for GDC 2016 at
