SSE was honored to host seven PreK-12th grade teachers from Mexico who were visiting ASU as part of the Global Launch Televisa group. Global Launch provides intensive English courses, as well as other training programs for visiting international students. Their goal is to build lasting relationships with institutes around the world, and entice students and educators to see and be a part of ASU for years to come. On this trip, the visiting educators received teacher training through Global Launch, as well as a cultural introduction to ASU and the Phoenix metro area.
While touring the Biodesign Institute on campus, the group stopped in to visit SSE and received a bilingual overview of the project, and an introduction to the Sustainability Education Framework for Teachers. They also took a virtual tour of the SSE courses, including the newly-launched two-week professional development class for in-service teachers, Integrating Sustainability Science into the Classroom (PD 101).
