Haiku-Haibun Workshop for Teachers at the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens

During our engaging, hands-on professional development workshops, enthusiastic teachers get inspired to use creative writing and the arts to connect their students with the world.

You’ll learn how to integrate, into your regular classroom teaching, fun and meaningful activities that will increase your students’ global competence (with a minimum of planning and paperwork on your part!).

Whether you’re just considering the importance of introducing your students to the world outside our borders…

…or whether you’re ready to learn how to connect your class to their peers in another country to interact and create together via the internet…

…our professional development is just what you need to bring the planet into your classroom.

No matter if you’re brand new to the concept of global competence or a veteran at creating international collaborations, our workshops will provide you with lots of great materials and resources that you can take away and use in your own global adventures with your students.
