Global Education Center is recognized as a national model for professional development in multicultural arts integration. Join us for one of our teacher institutes as well as special teacher in-service opportunities offered throughout the year.
The Global Education Center offers a Summer Multicultural Arts Institute for Teachers as well as several one-day professional development opportunities. These in-service trainings are
for teachers that need, and want, to explore the cultural traditions and values of the different students they teach. By educating these teachers about their students and their families they are better able to create an environment of inclusion and respect within their individual classrooms and throughout the whole school environment.
We believe strongly that creating an inclusive and respectful school environment is one of the most effective tools for ending the bullying, the disrespect and the self-esteem problems evident in our schools today. The Global Education Center's multicultural arts integration professional development offers a creative and engaging solution by promoting cross-cultural understanding and respect and equipping teachers to better handle the diversity within their own classrooms while giving them the tools to integrate the arts of the world into the entire curriculum.
Our summer institute as well as our one-day training workshops are professional development for teachers in multicultural arts integration for which they can earn in-service credits.
2020 Summer Teacher Institute postponed until June 2021
Professional development for preK - 12 teachers is made possible with support from The Nissan Foundation, The Memorial Foundation, Metro Nashville Arts Commission, Tennessee Arts Commission and National Endowment for the Arts.
