Take your vocation to a different location! Exchanges are a unique and interactive professional peer-to-peer development opportunity for teachers and school administrators to collaborate within their profession. The opportunity to experience one’s vocation in a different location opens the door to conversations and experiences of best practices and perspectives. Teacher exchanges allow teachers and administrators to experientially gain insight into teaching methods practiced elsewhere, and how other systems approach matters such as inclusion, indigenous ways of knowing, second language learning, remote and rural education. Collaborative international initiatives build programs that benefit students, administrators and teachers, and help foster understanding between peoples and countries. For the short term exchange, you are hosted by your exchange partner for 2 weeks, and you then reciprocate by hosting the overseas teacher. For full year exchanges you switch homes and positions for the entire year. Destinations include Australia, Germany, Spain, Iceland and the United Kingdom. Please join us for a session on exchange opportunities to sail your ship in the direction of global citizenship and international community building.
