By leading a trip abroad, you are providing a chance for students to exercise their core competencies (Communication, Thinking, Personal and Social) as outlined in the new BC curriculum in a context outside of the every-day world experience of living in BC. In addition, you are helping students further develop intercultural competencies by learning about and engaging with people from other cultures, and in the process learning more about themselves. Further to this, you will also be challenged in ways that will make you think about how and what you are teaching. Planning and running a trip abroad is a lot of work, but it will be worth it in the end. Are you ready to do it?
