Globalization has remapped the way we live and interact, making the world a seemingly much smaller place. We are longer just national citizens but also global citizens. Take the steps necessary to prepare the next generation for this reality. Learn what you need to know to craft a curriculum that addresses the most pressing international issues of our times. Discover new methods and approaches to these topics. Share your experiences and ideas with other educators. Be a force for educational change.
