Global Competence Module 2: How Learners See the World
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.
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
