World as Classroom: A New Everett Cafe Book Display
A major attraction to working at Teachers College is our international student body and depth and breadth of our faculty in their work across the globe. Interestingly, our students come from all over, faculty members consistently engage in international initiatives, and staff is dedicated to training teachers who have served abroad (Peace Corps Fellows) and plan to work in our city’s schools. International work stretches there and back, like a big rubber band holding us together in rich, significant ways. So, it is fitting that we recognize our contributions to education on a global scale and appreciate the context of the world in learning.
Did you know that Teachers College is a pioneer in the field of International Education, beginning with the establishment of the International Institute of Education in 1923 by Professor Paul Monroe? Among the 5,090 students enrolled today at Teachers College, 20.4 percent represent international students from eighty different countries? Excluding international students, ethnicity is 43% of the total enrollment, as reported by the Office of Institutional Studies?
Come join us as we celebrate the diversity of our global community and the extensive international research and work that our students and faculty continue to do in the field of International Education! Supportive of International Education Week, “an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide”, is a book display highlighting work by Teachers College faculty and alumni, as well as other well-known authors in the field. It features important issues and challenges in the field, including conflict, intercultural communication, bilingualism, gender, social justice, and globalization, that prompt us to consider our place and future in teaching, learning, and research.
World as Classroom is guest curated by Chiara Davis Fuller, Master’s student in International Education Development at Teachers College, and Administrative Fellow in the Office of International Services. Chiara served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Belize, Assistant Language Teacher and Supervisor in the Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme (JET), and WorldTeach Volunteer educator and Language Department Coordinator in Ecuador.
International Education Week (IEW) was held at Teachers College, Columbia University from Monday, November 14th through Friday, November 18th. This year’s theme was International Educational Exchange: Past, Present and Future.
