Global Teacher Seminar

The Global Teacher Seminar is a weeklong workshop that takes place on The Ohio State University campus.  Its central goal is to inform K-12 teachers about a different global theme each year and work with teachers to incorporate this content into their classroom. The seminar deepens teachers’ understanding of the different issues and challenges related to the theme facing society now and in the future. Countries from different regions of the world are used as case studies to examine particular problems, how these countries are attempting to address the problems, and an analysis of the potential outcomes. 

The following regions of the world are addressed in the seminar:

  • Africa
  • Asia
  • Eastern Europe
  • Latin America
  • The Middle East
