    The second annual RU World Ready? Global Education Conference will be held August 19, 2017 in Kyle Hall on the campus of beautiful Radford University in southwest Virginia. The conference serves the needs of pre-service and practicing educators striving to develop global competencies for themselves as well as their students who will enter a rapidly changing and ever more interconnected world. We welcome presentation proposals focused on preparing pre-service and in-service global educators to foster the global competency skills in their PreK-12 classrooms. Presentations should be practical in nature and offer specific strategies and resources in an engaging manner that models the teaching practices promoted in the presentation.

    Three teacher education interns present their experiences participating in the Global Mentors Project during their Early Field Experience placements in 2017. In a two-month time frame, the project paired interns with mentor teachers from Taiwan, Russia, England, Australia, Thailand, and India. Radford interns completed a Globes for Peace project between classrooms, shared school cultures through media and artifacts, interacted on Facebook, and learned how global projects enhance competencies when a teacher operates not only locally, but with others from around the world.
