Our research partners at the Harvard School of Education think so too, which is why they just released Educating Students to Improve the World, a free, open-access book. Written by Fernando M. Reimers, the Ford Foundation Professor of the Practice in International Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, it focuses on how to educate students to be global citizens, and outlines how to transform our schools to achieve those goals.
In this book you’ll find tangible ways to help your students become more curious and globally aware. One of the highlights is in chapter six, An Institutional Perspective and Global Education, which outlines how to align efforts on institutional levels to create lasting change.
Additionally, Fernando and his colleagues recently published two reports specifically addressing how to respond, guide, and support teaching and learning during COVID-19. The first focuses on supporting educational decision making to develop and implement effective responses to the pandemic. The second presents a set of online resources which support continuity of teaching and learning from education leaders around the world.
