This was a free two-day-long workshop led by Heather Singmaster, Director in the Center for Global Education at the Asia Society, where she oversees the Global Cities Education Network and works on integrating global competence into Career Technical Education (CTE) programs.
This workshop covered the topics of Career and Technical Education and Global Employability skills, and was designed to assist educators with integrating global competencies into Employability Skills, CTE programs, and other disciplinary units (such as Economics and Social Studies). There were a mix of activities including an introduction to global learning and global skillsets, instructional resources, module development, dialogue, group work, and curriculum development. This workshop provided participants with a $200 stipend, professional growth points, lunch, and mileage reimbursement.

The workshop for language educators covered What Does It Mean to be Proficient? (what the various levels of proficiency look like and what it takes to reach those levels) and Two by Two: Moving Along the Proficiency Continuum (examples of good pair activities and how to effectively implement them). Pair work is one of the most effective strategies in giving students the speaking ability they want. In addition to being a highly effective engagement strategy, it allows students to practice in a less exposed setting and provides them many more opportunities to speak than in a teacher-dominated environment. Attendees experienced several pair activities, and were directed to resources that can be accessed for use in their own classrooms.
