Learn about Global Education

Getting started with global education can be overwhelming. There are many resources available, but it's really tough to know where to begin. In this section, I want to share just a few of my favorite resources and ideas. I've used many of the resources myself and am including notes on my experiences.

These tools are useful in providing an outline for your global education plans. You can also use these tools to assess the effectiveness of your plans after implementation.
