IJWC adviser completes Global Education 101

To enhance his expertise in global education, the adviser of the International Junior Writers Club participated in Global Education 101, an online course sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA), with funding provided by the U.S. Government and administered by the International Research and Exchanges Board (IREX). The course objectives for educator participants include: (1) define global competence and connect it to student success, (2) begin to understand the themes and concepts of global education and global competence, (3) develop instructional strategies to incorporate global competence into lessons and units, and (4) build resources for further learning and networking for global competence. The IJWC adviser shared with other participants what was done with the IJWC initiative to promote global education and competence.
