A Premium Skill for Teachers: Intercultural Competency
March 5th @ 2pm Eastern Time
Today’s classrooms are becoming increasingly diverse, while teachers are charged with preparing students for a global economy. In this context, intercultural competency is an increasingly important skill set for educators to possess-and for human resource offices to build into their recruitment and retention strategies.
This webinar-held in conjunction with the TopSchoolJobs Virtual Career eXPO-will be led by an experienced district human resources administrator who’s taken a deep look at how teachers can find out where they are on the intercultural-competency continuum. From there, teachers can develop capabilities to effectively respond to and build on cultural differences in the classroom. By offering insights into one district’s strategy for increasing administrators’ and new teachers’ intercultural competency, our speaker will show how the program is enhancing educators’ careers.
Darlene von Behren is an assistant superintendent for personnel and human services in Palatine, Ill. She is widely known as an expert on educational leadership and intercultural training for teachers.
This webinar will be moderated by Anthony Rebora, Managing Editor, Education Week Teacher.
