Event Description

TIGed is offering three professional development e-courses for teachers this Fall: "Project-based Learning for Global Citizenship", “Education for Environmental Stewardship” and "Empowering Student Voice in Education". These graduate-level, accredited courses are designed to support teachers in bringing the world into their classrooms through the use of e-technologies and international partnerships to help students understand global perspectives, environmental issues and student voice. For more information about TIGed’s e-courses and to register today, visit tigurl.org/ecourses

"Project-based Learning for Global Citizenship" is taught by Jennifer D. Klein. The goal of this course is to develop teachers’ understanding of and competencies in technology-enabled global education. Using TIGed’s online forums as a basis, we will explore why global education is so vital currently, and how to develop authentic and transformative global experiences for students.

In particular, teachers will be exposed to the following key areas:
- Foundational strategies and pedagogies for effective global educational design
- Project-Based and Inquiry-Based Learning principles as applied to student-driven global learning and leadership development
- Key e-technologies behind authentic, humanizing approaches to global education, particularly TIG and TIGed tools which can be used to empower students as learners and leaders
- Interdisciplinary approaches which enrich students’ experiences, helping them see the interconnectedness of our borderless global challenges
Global partnership development, including the value of developing collaborative learning relationships between classrooms and schools, and strategies for navigating the challenges
- Methods for connecting students with existing global and local organizations for partnerships and real-world action
- Methods for shifting school thought to create a culture of critical thinking and global leadership, in which students feel empowered to address controversial issues and engage in creating change
- Examples of effective global learning projects and how to assess project success
- Assessing student learning in global learning projects, both in global competencies and traditional academic benchmarks

This course is being offered twice this Fall on the following schedule:

- September 17 - October 22, 2012
- October 27 - November 26, 2012
