About the GTC Global Communication Network

The GTC global communication network aims to develop collaborative relationships to advance our unique niches to better serve targeted populations and communities. During the fall GTC 2022 Summit we introduced a post-COVID theme that focused on how education might look going forward beyond the pandemic.

In an increasingly interconnected world, the importance of preparing students for global engagement cannot be overstated. This summit addresses the critical need for educators to possess global teaching competencies that enable them to effectively navigate diverse classrooms and cultivate global competence in their students. The supporting research stems from the recognition that a significant portion of jobs in the modern world are linked to international trade and virtual worlds, emphasizing the urgency of equipping students with the skills to thrive in a technology-driven globalized workforce.
