Diplomacy Classroom: The Fulbright Teacher Exchange Experience

September 14, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT

Diplomacy Classroom is a monthly virtual event presented by the National Museum of American Diplomacy where we explore diplomacy through a historical event, person, or contemporary global issue. We are highlighting the Fulbright Exchange Program in honor of its 75th anniversary this year. With our guest from the Teacher Exchange Branch in the Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, we will discuss the mission and the history of the Fulbright Teacher Exchange Program and the impact it has on teachers and students in the United States and around the world. We will explore how teachers can take advantage of exchange opportunities and become diplomats, inspiring a global outlook and global competence in their students. A Teacher Exchange alumna will join the discussion to reflect on her experiences.
