The final presentation for 25 Korean participating teachers in ‘Teaching Abroad for Global Competency Programme’ was held on 11 March 2016 at APCEIU.

At this final presentation, 10 Korean teachers who were dispatched to Germany, 5 Korean teachers who were dispatched to Singapore and 10 Korean teachers who were dispatched to Australia as well as their school principals and vice principals  attended. It was an opportunity for them to understand the purpose of this programme and  plan for future educational exchange activities. Officials from Metropolitan and Provincial Offices of Education, who were involved in selection process of the teachers, also attended to share the outcomes of the Korean teachers’ educational activities through this exchange programme.

‘Teaching Abroad for Global Competency Programme’ is an exchange programme and it dispatches Korean teachers abroad for 2 ~ 3 weeks to conduct educational activities through partnership with their matching teachers. Then those matching teachers from abroad are invited to Korea  to teach in Korean schools. The focus area of the educational activities varies for each country. The focus area is vocational education for Germany, NCS-based career education and multicultural education for Australia, and multicultural education for Singapore. With these focus areas, participating  teachers from each country will explore and learn each other’s educational systems.

Starting with German teachers in April, Singaporean teachers and Australian teachers will be invited to Korea in May and July respectively. They will have opportunities to co-teach with their Korean matching teachers and conduct their major curriculum subjects along with cultural lessons in the host schools in Korea.

Nineteen Korean math and science teachers with second-level licenses have been dispatched to the US for ten months from Aug 25, 2014 to end of May in 2015. The teachers are participants in the Teaching Abroad for Global Competency Programme, and will be learning about professional teaching methods and how to develop global competence as teachers in Bloomfield College in New Jersey, USA.

Previously, for four days from July 14 to 17, participants shared their opinions about the educational systems of Korea and the US, EIU (Education for International Understanding), and convergence education at pre-training. They also learned about educational systems, policies and academic characteristics of the US and Korea through lectures given by experts in those fields. Furthermore, the teachers participated in activities about ‘Coexistence Education’ in order to understand others and foster community spirit, and prepared to help one another by building survival teams. As a part of training to prepare for real lessons in the US, they created a teaching guide and taught classes while receiving feedback from specialists.
The teachers also explored the backgrounds, history, meanings and conditions of EIU through topics such as ‘UNESCO and EIU’, ‘US Education System and EIU Practice’. After this, they learned how to effectively convey EIU in the classroom and by exploring methodologies of EIU teaching and implementation. In addition, they formulated coping strategies for possible issues that may arise in the classroom through safety education and sexual harassment prevention education.
