Programs begin in the spring with an orientation workshop, followed by a 10- to 14-day international immersive learning experience abroad in the summer. In the fall, an action-planning workshop creates a platform for collaboration and creativity to ensure teachers are prepared to share their global experiences in their classrooms.
