Our news is filled with stories from other places. Our schools contain students from different cultures. How do we learn and model the skills of intercultural understanding? One way is to participate in a teacher exchange or administer exchange, returning home with a new skill set to model global citizenship.

This session will walk you through the process and introduce newly returned teachers to share their stories. Teach and travel –that’s as good as it gets.

Alberta Education’s Teacher Exchange program is over 30 years old and has facilitated hundreds of exchanges. The coordinator of the program will describe the destinations, process, highlights and challenges. Recent participants will share their stories and answer your questions.

Teachers and administrators are matched to Australia, Germany, Spain, Denmark, and the United Kingdom with this dynamic and inspiring professional development program.
