Registration Open - Geaux Global: LSU Education Collaborative in Chile
The Geaux Global in Chile professional development program provides in-service teachers the unique opportunity to teach in a Chilean classroom in partnership with Chilean teachers and students. The English focused school and the LSU team provide enriching professional development experiences for all participants. In addition to classroom experiences and professional development, participants live with host families and are able to better understand the cultural, emotional, and developmental supports provided to second-language learners.

One of the benefits of this program is the ability to connect with teachers, students, and families for a meaningful professional development experience. Once accepted each participant will complete a teaching profile to highlight your experiences and interests. This profile will be used to match participants with a Chilean classroom teacher. Prior to the start of the experience participants and their Chilean host teachers will have the opportunity to connect via email, FaceTime, Skype and other means to share ideas and plan a little for the time. During the experience mutual shared professional knowledge is the orientation and we provide professional development for both groups. Each participant will be certified as having completed 120 hours of professional development through continuing educational units.
