On The Ground, Seemingly Everywhere
Published in TC Today - Volume 38, No. 1
Over the past 125 years, Teachers College has worked worldwide — from Azerbaijan to Zambia. As two longtime team members describe, TC’s Office of International Affairs, launched in 2008, has created a broader institutional presence.
PORTIA WILLIAMS, Executive Director, International Affairs: “We cultivate relationships and help implement collaborative initiatives that have a significant impact with our partners and at TC. In the past year, our work has supported STEM education in Indonesia, special education in Oman, technology in Bulgarian classrooms and building a Bachelor of Education degree in Pakistan.”
CHENG DAVIS, Special Advisor for International Advancement: “With the U.S. Department of Education and the education schools of Harvard, Penn and Columbia, we are researching teacher education and instructional models in mathematics and science in seven nations in APEC, the premier Asia-Pacific economic forum. We continue building TC’s international teacher education and education leadership training for international participants.”
