Inspired by the introduction of the new Iowa Core Curriculum and its focus on global literacy concepts and 21st century skills, the institute has turned its attention to global education, with a goal of preparing teachers from across the state to infuse global perspectives into their classrooms.

The institute is a professional development opportunity.  The director of the Global Education Institute for Teachers is Dr. Greg Hamot, a professor in the UI College of Education and the associate director of the UI Center for Human Rights. 

Middle, junior and high school teachers from Iowa’s four congressional districts are invited to apply to the institute, where they’ll spend two days on the UI campus engaged in training, group activities, workshops, and guest speaker presentations. 

The 2016 Global Education Institute for Teachers will be held December 10-11, 2016.  For more information and an application, click here.

Registrations are due by October 31, 2016.
