Summer Institute for Global Educators


The free online Summer Institute for Global Educators, with the support of the Longview Foundation and the National Resource Center Program of the U.S. Department of Education, will allow in-service and pre-service secondary educators in all subject areas to develop courses and lesson plans with enhanced global and regional studies content. Educators from Title I schools are especially encouraged to apply. Online synchronous and asynchronous sessions will include the use of film and media, simulations, games, and technology to enhance global learning and teaching. Pitt College in High School (CHS) teachers will have the opportunity to meet with CHS staff on foregrounding global issues while meeting University and district requirements.
