Preparing Students to Teach and Lead in a Diverse, Globally Connected World

It has never been more important for educators and other professionals engaged in the field of education to be globally conscious and equipped to instill global competency in their own students. Through engagement with international students, institutional partnerships, on-campus international programming, study abroad opportunities for both graduate and undergraduate students, and research with visiting scholars, we prepare globally conscious citizens, teachers, administrators, researchers, and policymakers who are ready to confront the global challenges and embrace the worldwide possibilities of our time.


Now Accepting Applications from In-service Teachers for Global Fieldwork

by the College of Education at Illinois  /   Oct 3, 2018

Applications for global fieldwork in 2018-1019 are now open for in-service teachers. Join teachers, faculty and students from the College of Education on travels to schools abroad for research and collaboration. Choose from 14 different locations including Singapore, Costa Rica, Australia, and Spain. View the full list of opportunities.

Teachers are eligible to participate in three ways:

1) Graduate credit. Four credits of non-degree or graduate credit toward an Illinois degree. Waivers from collaborative teaching can be used. 

2) Professional development. Hours depend on the length of the trip (three to 12 range). 

3.) Join the trip and receive no course credit but experience life-changing travels. Apply for a program.

This year we are pleased to announce a fellowship for practicing teachers ranging from $500 to $1,500, funded in part by the Department of Education VI grant. To apply:
