Global Teaching Dialogue

The U.S. Department of State’s 6th Annual Global Teaching Dialogue took place virtually in 2021. Sponsored by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, the Global Teaching Dialogue is a chance for Fulbright Teachers to conduct workshops on integrating global competence and international best practices across the K-12 curriculum.

This year there was a full agenda, and I presented “Investigating in a Democracy: Globalizing Discussion, Deliberation, and Debate”. While this year’s conference was held virtually, for the first time I was able to present at a conference with my family attending. During my Ph.D., I have spoken at multiple educational research conferences, but sharing my research and classroom teaching with U.S. and international educators has given me a new sense of optimism regarding the teaching profession.
