The NEA Foundation is accepting applications for its 2018 Global Learning Fellowship program.

By participating in the Global Learning Fellowship program, educators have an opportunity to lead the profession by acquiring the skills needed to integrate global competence into their daily classroom instruction, advance pedagogy in their school/district, prepare students to thrive in a “flattened” global age, and contribute to the closing of the global achievement gap.

Through online courses and webinars, workshops, and a nine-day field study, the program provides educators with twelve months of professional development opportunities as they cultivate their global competence skills and build lesson plans that are shared with educators around the world. Over the course of a single year, fellows are supported by the NEA Foundation staff, partners, and other field experts.

The field study is designed to focus on the themes of global competence, education (both practice and issues of international, national, and state policy), and economics. The trip will provide fellows with structured opportunities to observe high-quality instruction and to interact with educators, students, administrators, and policy makers. Fellows also will have opportunities to investigate the historical and cultural significance of the destination country and engage in a service-learning project with a local community organization. Previous field study destinations have included China, Brazil, and Peru. The anticipated field study destination for the 2018 Global Learning Fellowship is South Africa.
