Single Course Registration

I have absolutely loved the coursework and the discussions I have been able to have with professors and colleagues. Along with great content, I have gained engaging instructional strategies that I can apply in my classroom.

The Global Competence Certificate was launched in 2014 with the goal of increasing the number of educators professionally trained to teach for global competence. As the program grew, there was a demand from teachers to enroll in single courses. In 2016, we introduced that option.

In-service educators may register for select GCC courses outside of the full certificate program. Courses last for 8 weeks and participants should be prepared to devote approximately 6 hours per course per week to synchronous and asynchronous coursework. There are 4-6 synchronous class meetings during each 8-week course and these meetings generally are scheduled for 1.5 hours on weeknights between 6pm and 10pm Eastern time.

Seats in the following courses are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Click here for course descriptions.
