Exploring Global Competency: An Interdisciplinary Approach
with Academy Fellows Elizabeth Eagle and Liz Titone
Wednesday, April 21, 2021
4:30 p.m. – 5:45 p.m.
Registration is closed.
Deadline: April 20.
This workshop is led by two Academy Fellows who co-founded e2 education & environment, a collective of global educators, artists, scientists, and historians that creates shared learning experiences across cultures and continents, disciplines, and generations. They’ll share multi-grade, multidisciplinary projects that embrace student creativity, community-based knowledge, and subject area content. They’ll also point out potential pitfalls in designing such projects. Participants will end the session in small groups, brainstorming projects for their own schools. We strongly encourage participants to bring along school colleagues from other disciplines.
