Educator Programs

The Institute of World Affairs (IWA) believes K-12 teachers play a critical role in fostering a globally-engaged and connected society.  We provide on-going programming and support to teachers to increase global education in the classroom and beyond, including:

  • Professional Development workshops and events
  • Curricular resources and support on global topics
  • Opportunities to meet global experts and practitioners
  • Youth workshops and programs to complement classroom teaching
  • A service-learning initiative that connects the world to students’ daily lives
  • An educator e-mail list featuring up-coming events and opportunities
