In June, World View hosted its first Global Education Teacher Leader Institute at UNC-Chapel Hill. The week-long program brought together over thirty teachers from across North Carolina (and Washington D.C.) for a week of examining global issues, exploring leadership strategies and planning ways to implement global education in the classroom.
Presenters spoke on Embracing the Cultural Dimensions of Globalization, Africa and Human Rights, U.S. and Cuba relations and Making Sense of the Middle East, among other topics. Participants also engaged in professional goal setting sessions, a book discussion, a Meet and Greet with National Resource Center and UNC program representatives and a film screening of He Named Me Malala. After a busy and productive week, the program concluded with a final address by Peter Brews, dean of the Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina, and a graduation luncheon to honor the inaugural class of the Institute.
We want to congratulate our global education teacher leaders on their active engagement and thoughtful interaction during the Institute and wish them continued success as they become leaders in global education at their schools.
World View would also like to extend an important thank you to all the presenters and representatives who graciously shared their time and expertise throughout the week. We could not do what we do without your participation and dedication to global education in North Carolina.
