Community College Master Teacher Institute
“A terrific project for an often overlooked education sector (community colleges). There are few to no other opportunities like this for community college professors.” – CCMTI Participant
The Community College Master Teacher Institute (CCMTI) is a two-day training for community college instructors organized by the Center for Global Studies at the University of Washington. Founded in 2003 by Tamara Leonard, Managing Director of the Center for Global Studies, the goal of CCMTI is to build the capacity of community college instructors to teach about international affairs, and in turn through the classes these instructors teach, increase community college students’ knowledge and understanding of global issues. The Institute aims to meet this objective in four ways: helping instructors become familiar with the topic; encouraging instructors to incorporate topics into new and existing courses; providing instructional resources for use both inside and outside the classroom; and fostering a resource network of community college educators within and beyond Washington State. The Institute brings together a vast network of dedicated professors, educators, researchers, and practitioners to share in the training and offer their expertise on the chosen subject.
