Internationalization of Teacher Preparation Featured in "State of Global Competence" Blog Series

Nov 17, 2014

Asia Society Partnership for Global Learning launched a blog series last month on Education Week that examines the last ten years of global competence in the United States, including internationalization of teacher preparation. 

The blogs, which feature perspectives across the K-20 spectrum, included two blogs by GTE's Executive Director, Caitlin Haugen.  The first incorporated reflections on the last decade of internationalization in the United States, highlighting interviews from seasoned teacher educators in the field.  The second called on teacher educators abroad to provide a global look at internationalization.

Asia Society's Director of Education, Anthony Jackson, and Assistant Director of Education, Heather Singmaster, launched the series. "The two of us recently reached the same milestone—ten years of working at Asia Society and of working in the field of international education," they write. "We thought this would be an appropriate time to reflect on the state of the field and the growth we have seen over the years in programs and policies that promote global competence."  It will last until the end of December.
