Hello Global Ed Conference Members! Happy 2013! I hope that all of you are enjoying the new year so far. I know that many of you have wonderful collaborative global projects planned with your classrooms already. I look forward to hearing all about them in upcoming events that Lucy and Steve have in the works. I'm posting today to let you know about professional development e-courses that TakingITGlobal has on offer. We're planning to offer three cycles of each of our three courses, with the first ones starting in just over a week. Keep reading for more information, or visit tigurl.org/ecourses.
