Internationalizing Teacher Education


Working Together to Internationalize Higher Education

Effective and sustainable methods of internationalizing the teacher education curriculum are critical to fostering a global perspective among both future educators and their students. Our goal is to provide a space where deans, faculty members, senior international officers, and program directors convene to discuss issues, challenges, and solutions in interinstitutional collaborations at home and abroad, identify model practices and programs in experiential learning and fieldwork, and explore metrics and assessment tools used to evaluate progress.
