About the Event

This event was free of charge and took place virtually. The 2021 National Teacher of the Year delivered a keynote address. Alumni of the State Department’s Teacher Exchange Programs and other global education leaders conducted workshops on incorporating global perspectives into lesson plans and on adapting educational strategies and useful pedagogical practices from other countries. Fulbright Teachers led sessions focused on global issues such as human rights, climate change, and diversity, equity, and inclusion. Attendees also heard from U.S. Department of State officials about opportunities for students and educators of diverse backgrounds to participate in exchanges abroad, and have the opportunity connect with educators from around the world.
