Global Competence Module 2: How Learners See the World

This module - the second in a three part training series - provides educators the opportunity to reflect on learners' backgrounds and the perspectives they bring to the classroom.

Global Competence Training, Part 2: How Learners See the World

Recording: Module 2 of the Global Competence training. 

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 Paul D. Coverdell World Wise Schools 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.
