Institute on Integrating Global Competence – Twin Cities

In this two-day workshop participants will be introduced to World Savvy’s Educational Approach through hands-on learning experiences. Educators will explore Global Competence and its importance in the classroom, school, and society. The World Savvy Case Study Approach, an inquiry-based protocol for building background knowledge on significant global issues will be experienced, as well as the Knowledge to Action design process where educators will use a design thinking methodology to arrive at a solution to a local issue. World Savvy’s suite of resources will be shared with participants as they frame student learning experiences. Opportunities for reflection, debrief and an open exchange of ideas and practice will occur throughout the two days.
A light breakfast and full lunch will be served.
