Opportunity for Teachers to Earn Compensation for Global Competence Experience
Do you demonstrate global competence in your daily teaching practice? World View is excited to announce a new Globally Competent Teaching (GCT) Team at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, which is comprised of members from World View, LEARN NC, and the UNC School of Education. Members from the School of Education have created a rubric to measure global competency among teachers. The Team is currently seeking educator consultants to serve as globally competent teaching experts who will work with us to create online educator resources. These resources will be available as part of the rubric to help fellow teachers develop their own global competence. As compensation, consultants will receive $500. The project is funded by a Longview Foundation grant.
