Recognizing that the skills needed to teach globally differ from those needed to lead global education beyond the individual classroom, Primary Source will offer its seminar series for educators interested in broader leadership around global education initiatives. Meeting face-to-face and online during the 2018-19 school year, this seminar will create a collaborative and supportive network of educators who wish to build their skills and understanding in specific tools of leadership: understanding the processes of change, crafting narratives, understanding policy, writing to advocate and persuade, leading dynamic teams, and engaging allies. Participants will also develop their knowledge of the global education field and consider how to design and systematize global learning opportunities across several dimensions of schooling. As the year progresses, all seminar participants will create and begin to implement a capstone project to advance global learning in their schools or districts, benefiting from the feedback and insights of the group and contributing experts.

The main requirement for the seminar is an interest in global education leadership.  Any K-12 teacher or administrator is welcome, and we encourage teams that include a teacher and administrator to apply (principals, curriculum supervisors, superintendents or assistant superintendents, department heads, or global studies coordinators).

For K-12 educators and administrators.

*Please feel free to join the course if you cannot attend all sessions. We are happy to work with you flexibly!
