International study visits take groups of educators to destinations around the world to experience a country and culture different from their own. Participants visit schools, colleges, non-governmental  organizations and significant historic and cultural sites to gain an in-depth understanding of country and region. Pre- and post-trip workshops ensure participants are well prepared before they leave and supported afterwards integrating what they’ve learned into their teaching. Where are educators going in 2017?

Both study visits have been closed at this time.
