As an IUB student, you will go through the Preparatory and Onsite phase of the Navajo Nation, Overseas, or Urban Program. The Preparatory Phase begins the academic year before you student teach. You will also earn a minimum of 9 master’s level credits for the program, but you do not need to be registered for anything before you attend the first class. Read below to learn how to join one of the programs.
Fall 2022 & Spring 2023 Student Teachers
To join the program, you will begin the Preparatory Phase in the Fall 2021. Typicallly in-person class sessions are held, and we expect to be able to do this in some form in the 2021-2021 year (possibly in a hybrid format using Canvas as well). Dates for the first class will be emailed to you early in the semester. You do not need to be registered in any Global Gateway course credit to get started!
Make sure you have been added to our email lists to get important reminders as well by contacting us or completing the interest form.
Join us to learn more and ask your questions:
March and April 2021: Fridays 1:00-2:00pm. Join Zoom here: https://iu.zoom.us/my/astuehling (password: ggt)
We look forward to working with you on this exciting opportunity!
Fall 2023 or Later Student Teachers:
Students who will be student teaching in a few semesters will begin the Global Gateway Preparatory Phase one academic year before they begin student teaching. This means that you may need to wait some time before joining one of the programs. If we have your name on our list, you will get email reminders about when you should begin attending classes.
Some things you can be doing now to plan ahead:
- Ask your advisor how joining the Global Gateway for Teachers can be integrated with course planning
- Make an appointment with a Global Gateway staff member to get your questions answered and browse information and photos about specific locations
- Make sure your name is on our lists for reminders about how to begin the program (check with Global Gateway staff or complete an interest form online or in the office)
