Summer Educator Training Course

We don’t usually use the blog to plug ourselves but we are just so excited!  Our summer intensive educator training course “Religion and Diversity Education: Cultivating Global Citizenship” is open!  We already have 8 participants who have registered since June 1st.  We are so excited to welcome our educators in July and look forward to meeting them soon.

The education team is so thrilled to have had such a great response…and so fast! We’ve got people registered from primary and secondary schools, both public and private.  And from all over the country.  Besides New York we’ve got California, Virginia and Pennsylvania covered.

In the Spring, when we first launched the course, we got great feedback from our participants who found the training really beneficial to their work.  A participant from the original training even suggested the course to her friend in CA who will now be joining us in July!

We have lots planned for our summer course.  We’ll be exploring our pedagogy and having discussions about religious identity in the classroom, social justice in schools and teaching for global citizenship.  This will all culminate on the final day when our participants will share their final projects.

If you or anyone else you know is interested in learning more about the course, please feel free to contact us. The more the merrier!
