How well are you and your school recognising your place in the world, cognisant of your own context yet not bound by it? How do you work to create an internationally-minded culture that informs your school ethos as well as your own teaching and/or leadership?
At ECIS, we believe that increased global understanding and engagement is an imperative in schools today, as we seek a better understanding of our world and an appreciation of each other, so that we create impact and opportunity for the current and subsequent generations.
Enter the ECIS Awareness in Global Perspectives course. Designed to help you develop your own awareness in Global Perspectives and to influence the development of Global Perspectives in your school, this course takes approximately 1 hour to complete, and culminates in an assessment aimed at helping you take stock of strengths and opportunities for growth, as you and your school move forward.
Result: you will have a better understanding of Global Perspectives as a concept, and how it manifests itself in a school context, supported by a simple yet trusted scaffolding for further development. We owe it to the global citizens we are educating, as much as we owe it to our own growth and development as teachers and leaders who strive constantly to cultivate our own global competences.
