The Global Academy @ The Learnerspace

The Global Academy at The Learnerspace

The Global Academy is a joint initiative from The Learnerspace and Fase 2, an opportunity for a shared exploration of the world of education through a series of study trips, conferences, school visits, and interactions with some of the most important speakers in the world of education.

This unique professional development offering will feature a series of trips to some of the most important conferences and learning opportunities in the world, all within a group of like-minded educators who seek to further their horizons by experiencing some of the most advanced, cutting-edge educational practices in learning institutions.

How does it work?

Educators are invited to take part in any or all of five trips a year, and by doing that they will join a community of educators who will share, through an online blog, their learning experience as well as valuable resources regarding global trends and innovative practices in education.

By participating in at least one trip per year, educators can access an annual subscription to the Global Academy website, which contains all conference presentations, photographs, interviews and a myriad of learning resources in a true online professional learning community.

How are the trips organized?

Fase 2, one of the leading firms in educational travel in Argentina, will provide all travel services including airfare, accommodation, conference enrollments when appropriate, travel insurance if required, and all transfers within the trip.

Approximately three weeks before the trip, there will be a meeting where participants will receive information on conference and trip logistics, speakers, recommendations for sessions, and general tips regarding the conference experience, as well as an overview of the educational themes related to the conference in school visits. This initial meeting will allow participants to maximize their learning experience and enjoyed to the fullest.

During the trip, educators from The Learnerspace will accompany the group, and will not only provide guidance and coordination during the trip itself, but also specific academic support regarding the learning activities at the conference or school visits. Whenever possible, there will be small group meetings and informal gatherings with speakers and educational leaders at the conference.

Every trip will feature a series of optional recreational and cultural excursions will be offered, since most of these trips take place in the backdrop of some of the most interesting and culturally rich cities in the world, so as to take full advantage of the travel experience itself.

After the trip is finalized, there will be another meeting, two weeks after the conference, so as to analyze the trends and lessons learned during the conference, debrief the learning experience, and help participants into applying the learning in their respective schools and communities.
