In collaboration with the School of Global and International Studies, the Center for P-16 Research and Collaboration in the School of Education has developed programs of various length that promote global mindedness and global competencies for students, pre-service and in-service teachers, and faculty members. These programs are in line with campus efforts to internationalize K-12 education in Indiana and by intertwining academic, practical and research components they raise awareness about global issues and foster deeper understanding of other cultures from different parts of the world.
Dual Language Immersion
This program provides professional development training and resources for the teachers and administrators at the five Indiana schools preparing to implement DLI programs over the next two years, as well as for the numerous teachers and administrators throughout the state who hope to implement DLI programs over the next several years.
Global Competence Workshop Series
The Global Competence Workshop Series consists of 6 modules and the workshops are held once a month. The aim of the series is to equip the 21st century educators with the skills to infuse global aspects in their instruction and to incorporate global topics and perspectives in schools across Indiana.
In-Service Teachers Workshops
The Center for P-16 Research and Collaboration has partnered with Indiana University Title Vi Area Studies Centers on the professional development opportunity for middle and high school social studies teachers. In this workshop, subject-matter specialists from IU Bloomington’s Title VI Area Studies Centers will present content related to the theme of Urban Growth: Examining the Trajectories and Circumstances of Urban Expansion.
Global Literacy Invitation Project
Global Literacy Invitation Project will introduce in-service teacher participants to quality children’s literature that supports global learning and connections. Teacher participants will be introduced to the Global Literacy Invitation teaching strategy and will examine ways in which their students can participate in an open-ended investigation that extends the theme of the book into other areas and subjects, including technology, science, math, music, and art.
