Innovative Learning Model

The Global Competence Certificate program itself is a reflection of an interconnected and global society and sets the standard for global competence teacher education programs. The GCC program is developed around an innovative program model comprising three components:

  • Component 1: Online Academic Coursework - Taught by Teachers College faculty and renowned educators, the coursework supports the development of global understanding and the skills needed to teach for global competence in a K-16 environment. GCC participants explore the theory, content, and pedagogy that lead to effective instruction for global competence. Learn more
  • Component 2: Fieldwork - Participants engage in 2-3 weeks of domestic or international fieldwork with partner institutions from across the globe to extend and deepen their learning and apply core understandings in a practical way. Learn more
  • Component 3: Capstone Seminar - Participants work collaboratively in small cohorts to develop a capstone project that supports implementation of global competence education. Learn more
