The Globally Competent Learning Continuum (GCLC) is an online self-reflection tool to help educators of all grade levels and content areas develop globally competent teaching practices. The GCLC provides 12 concrete globally competent teaching elements with descriptions of what each looks like at different levels of development. The GCLC also contains resources to help educators move along the continuum. Resources include articles, books, professional learning opportunities, videos of globally competent K–12 teachers in action, and teacher-created lesson plans.

  • Examine the full continuum to reflect on your own level of global competence and to learn the characteristics included in higher levels to advance along the continuum.
  • Dive into the competencies to determine the level that reflects your current experience and explore the resources to help you grow and improve in each element along the continuum.
