Hi Mahenddra — While most of the programs I know of are for US teachers, it may be worth asking the programs if they would accept a teacher from Nepal, or they may be able to connect you with a program that would.

Thank you for your interest, Cheryl A. Hi Cheryl, What a fascinating and worthwhile project! Best of luck! Hi Cheryl — Have you reached out to local service organizations? A Ugandan restaurant in the area? The funding support is often small, but the combined impact of a couple of small donations can sometimes help. I often then present at the organizations once I return, leading to further networking connections.

Hi Megan! They may give some good ideas or contacts for you. This is awesome info! I student taught abroad when I was at Miami University of Ohio. I think the above article says University of Miami of Ohio. Lillie and Kim what an amazing read! Thank you for your post. I too, a teacher for the past 17 years have the travel bug, along with a great intellectual curiosity and a deep love of learning about everything! People, places, cultures and more…but never enough money to make deeply meaningful travel happen:.
So, like you, Kim, I started taking the initiative to research opportunities over the past 5 or so years, and have been lucky enough to have been awarded a couple life-changing experiences, one of them this past summer to India, no less, through IREX. I would love to take that next step as well as continuing to travel of course. Sorry for the delayed response, but you know how grading always gets in the way!
I find speaking opportunities much in the same way I find travel opportunities. I search the internet, Facebook, and carefully read listerve posts for conferences and organizations that are interested in promoting global education. I then reach out to them formally through a conference proposal or informally through email to see if there is a common interest. I explore opportunities from the local to international scale and find, one thing always lead to another. I know everyone has a different local context. I try to avoid presenting at faculty meetings. I also always sign-up for chances to contribute to the district website or professional development days.
Many of these organizations also host online resource guides. More formally, I apply to present at many national and regional conferences. I use the same tips for writing conference proposals as I do travel applications. I also continue to foster professional relationships with the directors of the travel programs I have done.
When speaking to teachers, I try to balance content and pedagogy. My greatest challenge has been gaging the prior knowledge of my audience. How much do they know about the region I am presenting about? How much do they know about global competency frameworks? I give them sticky dots and have them place where they are on a spectrum of key statements.
A quick word on funding — I have been able to get funding to present at conferences as an alumni of the programs I have participated in. One of the great things about International Education Week is that it is online—let me know if you are interested in collaborating on doing something!
Do we actually know each other already? I think I traveled with a Sandra Brown five years ago or so in Oaxaca? No: Have not yet been there. In a word, yes! I would be delighted and eternally grateful to be able to learn from, and collaborate with you Kim. What a generous offer.

And for the entire summer? Or family goes with you? I normally travel with groups of other teachers, and then sometimes go off on my own, with a couple of teachers, or with family after a grant experience. If I could go the whole summer, I would! It varies year to year. Some summers its only three weeks, others its eight. There for I surport that idea of travelling during summer. It is fantastic.
With all programmes stated in this e-mail, is it all that any Nigeria Educationists can apply for?. Thanks in anticipation for your concern. I need more of this. Here is something I came across that may help bolster your resume for a traveling program:. American English Webinar Series 2 see attachment The 6 online seminars of the course cover a variety of topics and are intended for teachers of English or future teachers of English around the world.

Hi Kim and Lillie! What a great resource! I was so excited to see Earth Expeditions as one of your recommendations. They were truly life-changing experiences.
