We’d like to share a cool organization that offers summer travel courses. Global Exploration for Educators is a non-profit that runs professional development travel programs for teachers. Educators have the opportunity to earn graduate school and professional development credit while traveling to places such as the Peruvian Amazon, Morocco, China, and many more!
Trips last anywhere from 8 to 21 days. They’re designed to be interesting and discounted to be affordable for teachers. The group also provides educational materials to better prepare educators to bring their experiences back into the classroom.
The trips are open to K-12 and university educators and administrators, as well as retired educators. Educators are also permitted to bring along a non-educator guest. The registration deadline is June 1, 2015, but space is limited and many programs will be full well before the deadline.
You can find detailed info for each trip and more at their website here!
