K-12 and community college educators of all disciplines from World View partner institutions are invited to apply to the 2018 World View Fellows Program. This interdisciplinary professional learning opportunity will deepen educators’ understanding of contemporary global environmental issues and resources for teaching about these issues. This program culminates in the creation of study guides with educator resources created by World View Fellows in connection with the Population Institute’s OVERBook. This selective program will accept a total of 12 fellows representing a variety of disciplines across K-5, 6-8, 9-12 and community college.

Specific Program Objectives:

  1. To build the learning capacity of K-12 and community college educators in the field of environmental and sustainability studies and provide an opportunity for K-14 educators to create study guides with educator resources, publish them and share them with their colleagues at their schools and community colleges.
  2. To create study guides with educator resources for K-12 and community college educators, which will be piloted and published online to accompany the OVERBook as a tool to inspire and teach K-12 and community college students about global environmental issues.
  3. To create a collaborative national model that serves K-14 educators as they develop global classrooms to prepare students to engage in an interconnected and diverse world.
