Bridges to the World Registration

Please submit this form to register for CCWA's Bridges to the World program.

The Cleveland Council on World Affairs' provides the Bridges to the World program - a series of interactive workshops that examine the key elements of global education and explore a multitude of resources for educators to foster global competence in their classrooms. The semester-long professional development program trains a cohort of educators in middle and high school classrooms to become confident instructors in global education. The initiative offers educational resources for teachers in the realms of world affairs, geopolitical issues and U.S. foreign policy.

The workshops lead a cohort of participants through the four stages of global competency, using the Asia Society framework. Participants learn how to engage students in current events and international issues through investigating the world, recognizing the perspectives of others, communicating their ideas and taking action.

The Bridges to the World program includes three workshops that will be held in-person. Sessions will be held on February 4, March 4, and April 1 from 8:00 am—3:00 pm ET. 

Session #1: Immigration & Global Migration

Session #2: Climate Change

Session #3: Global Health & Next Steps

Once you have registered, CCWA will send a confirmation email.  

The cost for the full workshop series is $500. Participation in the full workshop series is encouraged. However, educators may also choose to register for individual workshops within the program at $200 for each workshop.

All participants will also receive three units of the Choices Program curriculum ($135 value), an iEARN-USA year-long membership ($75 value), 21 contact hours to be used toward CEUs, and the opportunity to earn two graduate credits through Cleveland State University.
