More than 20 Laurier Teacher Education Candidates have joined Glocal, a Faculty of Education initiative to help TECs connect global and local educational realities. The group has been active from the beginning of the year in supporting workshops on international teaching opportunities, participating in Ride for Refuge in which they raised $1000, and collecting school materials for Haiti.
Upcoming events include a learning circle on Aboriginal learning styles and participating in We Day Waterloo activities. The group is also planning on developing lesson plans with glocal connections on topics such as water, bread, and river monsters!
