Professional Development Print

One of the objectives of the Civitas International Programs is to introduce educators to exemplary curricular materials developed in the United States and other nations and to provide professional development in those materials. Professional development programs utilize learner-centered methodologies. The Civitas International Programs have organized numerous workshops and seminars for teachers, school administrators, curriculum developers, civic education program directors, government officials, and other educational leaders. Professional development opportunities have included delegation exchanges, Project Citizen and Foundations of Democracy training workshops, and the National Academy for Civics and Government.
