  • To increase teacher education faculty’s knowledge and skills to enhance their ability to prepare teachers with global competencies to teach all learners
  • To develop and maintain professional networks for teacher education faculty to collaborate and share best practices and resources on global education issues
  • To identify and elevate innovative and exemplary programs and models that train teachers and faculty to better understand and implement global perspectives

PLC participants will be selected through an application process taking place from February 6 – March 3, 2023.

Participants will be required to attend virtual monthly professional development workshops and contribute weekly to AACTE’s Global Ed Faculty PLC online community on Connect360. The time commitment each month will be 5 hours.
