Each autumn, Dragons hosts a four-day seminar for educators in the majestic Rocky Mountains of Colorado, focusing on best practices in international global education.
What are the best practices for managing risks involved in facilitating student travel? How do we add value to each multicultural opportunity at home and away? How do we facilitate activities that encourage empathy, self-awareness and leadership in our students?
In the Rocky Mountain Seminar we bring the best of our training practices to you and will offer a toolkit of activities and lessons that you can share with your students, either in the classroom or in the field. We are excited to share what we have learned in our twenty three years of experience leading groups in the developing world.
Our Rocky Mountain Seminar is an interactive salon that encourages participants to come with tools that have been successful in their classrooms or abroad-trips to share with others.Sample Itinerary
This was, by far, the best professional development program I have ever had the chance to be a part of.Maren Anderson, Director of Experiential Education, Drew School Rocky Mountain Seminar, Fall 2015
“The Rocky Mountain Seminar was wonderful and much better than other professional seminars I have been to. The intimacy of a small group meant that everyone’s voice was heard and I learned as much from other participants as the presenters themselves.”
