Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What can I get from joining the TTG Global EdTour Program?
Global learning matters. Recognizing the need for a global dimension in an educator’s perspective and the ability, therefore, of an educator to take a global perspective on contemporary events and issues are critical in preparing educators with 21st century instructional skills. TTG believes that the best way to gain new perspectives and build skills for the future is through experiential learning.
TTG offers Global EdTour programs where educators can observe and reflect on overseas-based classroom instructions and exchange ideas that will ultimately help transform own classrooms or school environment. Further, TTG includes a cultural/recreational travel experience in its program designed to add value to the learning experience outside the classroom.
