November 12, 2014 - November 12, 2014

Date: Wednesday, November 12th

Time: 9am-3pm

Location: Teachers College, Columbia University, New York, NY

In this hands-on workshop, teachers and curriculum leaders will 

  • Be given opportunities to understand the literature and practice around 21st Century Global Capacities and why they are essential for teaching and learning in the 21st century; 
  • Hear global case studies of how these capacities have been integrated into pedagogical approaches across grades and disciplines; 
  • Work in collaboration with global education experts to apply this learning throughout the curriculum development process—either by refining existing units, lessons and assessments and/or creating new versions using a 21st Century Global Capacities Framework; and
  • Develop new networks of colleagues and professional learning communities dedicated to cultivating global capacities in themselves, their colleagues, and their students.
