Description/Abstract: Everett Cafe News: World as Classroom: A New Book Display, through Friday, 12/23

Did you know that Teachers College is a pioneer in the field of International Education, beginning with the establishment of the International Institute of Education in 1923 by Professor Paul Monroe? Among the 5,090 students enrolled today at Teachers College, 20.4 percent represent international students from eighty different countries? Excluding international students, ethnicity is 43% of the total enrollment, as reported by the Office of Institutional Studies?

Come join us as we celebrate the diversity of our global community and the extensive international research and work that our students and faculty continue to do in the field of International Education! Supportive of International Education Week, "an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide", is a book display highlighting work by Teachers College faculty and alumni, as well as other well-known authors in the field. It features important issues and challenges in the field, including conflict, intercultural communication, bilingualism, gender, social justice, and globalization, that prompt us to consider our place and future in teaching, learning, and research.

World as Classroom is curated by Chiara Davis Fuller, Master's student in International Education Development at Teachers College, and Administrative Fellow in the Office of International Services. Chiara served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Belize, Assistant Language Teacher and Supervisor in the Japan Exchange and Teaching Programme (JET), and WorldTeach Volunteer educator and Language Department Coordinator in Ecuador.
