Our blog highlights efforts and research focused global competency development and internatinalization efforts in teacher education programs.  If you are interested in writing a blog for GTE, first register on the website.  To propose a blog entry, you are be asked to provide:

  • a few sentences describing your proposed post and a high-level outline
  • the target audience for your blog
  • an 80-word bio of yourself, with details about your role in education - this can be provided on your profile page
  • three to five links to other pieces you've written
  • if applicable - links to personal website(s), Facebook page, and/or your Twitter handle

You may submit this information by visiting the GTE blog page and clicking the "Propose a Blog Entry" button at the top of the page. Please take the time to assign appropriate tags – we want to make sure your blog is relevant to our community. You may also email admin at globalteachereducation dot org with the information above.  All blog proposals are reviewed by our Executive Director who will contact you directly should your blog be accepted.

  • Not exceed 850 words.  Ideally, posts are between 700 and 800 words.
  • Be targeted to an academic audience.
  • Have links provided (either embedded in the text or in parentheses directly next to the relevant text).  Links should be to publically available information and resources unless you are the author.
  • Include - if applicable - any supporting documentation.
  • Be supported by examples from your campus or program, research, or data.
