The Global Education Institute for Teachers will increase participants’ knowledge of, and capacity to teach with, global perspectives on social justice. Co-organized by Global Education at the Stanley Center, University of Iowa (UI) International Programs, the Stanley Museum of Art, and the UI College of Education, the 2023 Global Education Institute for Teachers is designed to introduce educators to the rationale behind learning global concepts and skills and methods to infuse global perspectives on social justice into the curriculum. In so doing, the Institute will focus on the proposed 21st Century Skills: Essential Concepts and Skills for Global Literacy developed for the Iowa Department of Education.
The course will focus on the following:
- Applying global perspectives in teaching and learning through social justice
- Increasing “state of the planet” awareness, intercultural competence, knowledge of global systems, and the impact of human choices across the curriculum
- Engaging as a global citizen
- Addressing the Iowa Core 21st Century Skills on Global Literacy and Culture
The course will also include:
- Lectures and group discussions with scholars in the academic disciplines on how to relate a global perspective to specific curricular areas
- Collaborative discussions on curriculum design and lesson development
- Digital technology for increased global understanding
