As observers and assistants to classroom teachers, Global Practicum (GP) participants build intercultural competence, compare and contrast educational systems, and reflect on teaching and learning in a culturally diverse setting.
You’ll see first–hand how cultural factors influence educational policies and practices. Some issues are the same across the world; others require strategies particular to a specific country and context. Working alongside experienced cooperating teachers, Global Practicum participants work with a diverse group of students and gain invaluable cultural experience. In addition, you will come to better understand their own beliefs and biases while you grow personally and professionally. You will better understand your profession in a global setting and gain the skills necessary to live and work in a multi–cultural setting.
