ITD will conduct a two-week Massachusetts-based program for twenty Dutch primary, middle, vocational, and high school teachers in the fall of 2017. The goals of the program are to: 1) provide the Dutch participants with an overview and a hands-on experience of the education system in the U.S., 2) foster lasting professional relationships between Dutch and U.S. educators.
ITD is a private nonprofit organization specializing in designing and implementing tailor-made professional, academic, youth, sports, and cultural programs for educators, students, government officials, business people, community leaders, and many others around the world. Since its founding in 1985, ITD has provided programming for over 3,300 participants from more than 100 countries through funding from the US Department of State, individual Fulbright Centers, USAID, USIA, World Bank, FAO, UNDP, UNICEF, Peace Corps, private businesses, and foreign governments.
The program will take place from 15-28 October, 2017 and will consist of an Overview Component, a Placement Component, and a Debriefing Component.
This project is funded by the Ministry of Education, Culture, and Science of the Netherlands and supervised by the Fulbright Center of the Netherlands and EP-Nuffic.
ITD is actively seeking schools to host a Dutch participant in the U.S. for about a week during the placement component. For more information, please contact Abril Navarro at ITD.
