Course Introduction

When considering comprehensive approaches to internationalization, educators think about 'in' and 'out' bound. In-bound considerations include questions like: Do my students have international backgrounds or are speakers of other languages and how is this a factor in their learning? What are international factors in the neighborhood of my school? What international content is included in my curriculum? (For example, do first graders visit the zoo to learn about animals on other continents)? What international issues are important in the curriculum or effect the lives of my students? Out-bound considerations include questions like: How can my students work with other students outside Ohio? How can my students learn more about global issues? How can I structure my lessons or assessments to support these interests? In this 20 hour institute, participants will view videos, chat, reflect, and construct answers to these questions.

Learning Objectives
