K-16 and IFLE: Teacher Development and Resource Delivery Today

Conference Paper

There have been considerable efforts on university campuses in the United States to internationalize their programs and curricula in order to produce students who are globally competent. Many colleges and schools of education are also working to internationalize, but teacher preparation programs make their efforts unique because a teacher with a global perspective has the potential to impact generations of future Americans through their classrooms.

This paper, authored by the executive directors of GTE and the Longview Foundation:

  • Makes the case for global competence;
  • Identifies and discusses key elements in an internationalized teacher preparation program;
  • Examines effective partnerships both with Title VI Centers and beyond; and
  • Identifies areas for policy application.
