Summary

The WorldTeach Global Education Fellowship (GEF) focuses on the intersection of globalization and learning in the 21st century. As one of our China Global Education Fellows, you will live in and experience a country that makes up 20 percent of the world’s population and is on the brink of becoming the world’s largest economy. What does this mean for the future of global trade and the global workplace? In what ways does China’s modernization impact Chinese society overall and its next generation of entrepreneurs, teachers, and professionals? How are traditional cultures and norms being impacted during this period of rapid industrialization and urbanization? These questions will be among those posed and explored during your fellowship. Serving as a full time teacher in a local school in Hunan Province, you will also participate in experiential reflection projects, either on your own or in collaboration with other Fellows. As a China Global Education Fellow, you will develop highly coveted 21st century skills and Chinese cultural expertise while participating in ongoing Chinese language training, making you more competitive in the global marketplace. In return, you will serve as a teacher and role model for high school and middle school students who are facing a highly competitive educational and employment market themselves. Placements for your fellowship take you to a town or city in the Hunan province. With a population of more than 65 million people, Hunan Province includes the large and vibrant capital city of Changsha as well as smaller, but still urban, town centers
