WHY STUDY Education ABROAD?
In the teaching profession, educators must be able to understand and appreciate all cultures as classrooms in the United States are becoming increasingly multinational, multicultural, and, in some cases, multilingual. As such, teachers must be able to teach their students to be responsible global citizens by sharing their own understanding of and appreciation for other cultures.
By including an international experience in a UW-Platteville education degree, students will gain firsthand knowledge of and experience with different learning models and teaching methods. Students' futures as educators hold endless opportunities to interact internationally, and participating on an education abroad program can help students make professional contacts with current and future educators around the world.
Upon graduation, having international experience on a resume can also help distinguish applicants in the competitive job market. It can help demonstrate a global perspective of the field and real-world issues, flexibility and adaptability, and knowledge of and openness to other cultures.
