NEA Foundation Accepting Applications for Global Learning Fellowships

The NEA Foundation is accepting applications for its 2020 Global Learning Fellowship program.

By participating in the Global Learning Fellowship program, educators have an opportunity to lead the profession by acquiring the necessary skills to integrate global competence into their daily classroom instruction, advance pedagogy in their school/district, prepare students to thrive in the flattened global age, and contribute to the closing of the global achievement gap.

Through online courses and webinars, workshops and a nine-day field study, the program offers educators twelve months of professional development opportunities designed to help them acquire global competence skills and build global lesson plans that can be shared with educators around the world. Over the course of the year, fellows are supported by NEA Foundation staff, partners, and other field experts.

The field study is designed to focus on the themes of global competence, education (both practice and issues of international, national, and state policy), and economics. The trip will provide fellows with structured opportunities to observe high-quality instruction and to interact with global educators, students, administrators, and policy makers. Fellows also will have opportunities to investigate the historical and cultural significance of the destination country and engage in a service-learning project with a local community organization. Previous field study destinations have included China, Brazil, and Peru.

For complete program guidelines, information about participants in the 2020 course, and application instructions, see the NEA Foundation website.

Deadline: February 4, 2019
