NEW APPROACHES TO GLOBALIZING YOUR SCHOOL
ISANNE and EF Educational Tours, a world leader in global education for the last 50 years, are partnering to provide a one-day global symposium that aims to connect like-minded educators and introduce strategies for educating students for global competence. As a participant, you will have the opportunity to collaborate and connect with other educators who recognize the power of global studies.The day will focus on peer-to-peer collaboration using an “un-conferencing” model; sharing challenges each school is facing, get fresh ideas for increasing global competence within your school, and create a community of local educators that you can continue to use as a resource. Topics to be covered include: liability and risk management, accessibility of programs, integration of STEM and global studies, and innovative ways that students and teachers are connecting with peers all over the world. We will have sessions ranging from diversity and global competency to safety and liability, to create a platform for you and your peers to connect, share school models, and set goals for global education.
Derrick Gay and George Stewart- Derrick and George have combined to help global citizens in independent schools for over forty years. Mr. Gay collaborates with education thought leaders to foster empathy, enrich inclusion and cultivate cultural competency. Mr. Stewart, the Director of Curriculum for EF Educational Tours and former Dean of Student Life at the Middlesex School (MA), works with independent schools to develop and implement successful global studies models. Together, the two will address where cultural inclusion and global competency intersect on today’s independent school campus.
