Here’s a story showcasing the power of international collaboration in education. UW-Green Bay’s Institute for Learning Partnership and Professional Program in Education will be welcoming a sizeable contingent of visiting educators from Nigeria next week (Monday, March 31 through Friday, April 4). About 20 teachers and administrators will be here for five days of learning and cultural exchange. Their visit will be focused on professional development, with numerous sessions and on-and off-campus events scheduled to cover and address a variety of subjects. We’ll have updates and coverage in a future issue.
It will be a busy week for international visitors to UW-Green Bay.
