Going to school in China

Going to school in China


In June, 31 award-winning public school educators will visit schools in Beijing and Xi’an, China to observe high-quality teaching instruction and interact with Chinese teachers and administrators as our latest cohort of Global Learning Fellows. The international field study is part of a year-long fellowship and supported learning experience.

Over the course of a year, these educators will explore the knowledge, skills, and disposition required to prepare their students for the global age.


Before becoming Fellows, each received the 2014 Awards for Teaching Excellence. Watch the video above to learn more about how the awards and fellowship will impact their professional practice, students, associations, and colleagues.
