<p>Global Competence Training, Part 2: How Learners See the World</p>

In order to meet the challenges of a 21st century learning environment, educators are required to be globally competent. Learners are growing increasingly more diverse, and globalization has created a workplace that requires globally minded graduates. Not all educators, however, are provided professional development opportunities to prepare them for this reality.

This module is one in a three part training series presented by the Global Connections program at Peace Corps. It is intended for K-20 educators, group leaders, or after school program leaders who want to understand how to develop global competence in their learners.

By the end of this module, learners will be able to:

  • Identify the fundamentals of culture
  • Articulate how their learners' views may differ from their own and how that impacts their learning
  • Describe how global competence can help them better reach diverse learners
