About The Course:

The Leading Global Discussions course creates a way for educators, administrators, and community leaders to develop lasting and applicable global competency skills. You will implement professional level and experiential learning and research to create change in your classrooms and/or communities. You will focus on the importance of self-reflection in diverse global settings, while creating plans to improve professional practice and community relations. EF and SNHU recognize the need to help establish educational and social change for students and community members seeking global solutions in an ever-changing diverse world. By taking a graduate-level course with your EF Tour, you will generously add to your travel experience. And, depending on the type of learning experience you want to have, you can choose a three-credit or a six-credit learning experience. Both versions of the course extend your global learning opportunities, including exploring a topic that is interesting to you and giving you an opportunity to develop your own thinking and global competency. The six-credit version of the course invites you to do this with more depth.




You will be expected to…
  • complete tasks that require time and attention based on your travel experience
  • use independent learning skills to complete course activities and conduct your own inquiry
  • use what you learn and experience during your travel to expand your thinking about yourself and the world
  • synthesize your professional knowledge and experiences with your new learning to advance your professional practice
  • apply your learning to your professional practice



Who Will Be My Instructor? You are going to participate in this class with SNHU-approved instructors who have a particular passion for teaching, learning, and global travel. Instructors have a variety of experiences in the field of education, are committed to helping teachers develop their global competency as a way to advance professional practice, and desire to help others enhance their positive impact for the world. They will work with you throughout the course as you successfully complete course requirements and develop your thinking, worldview, and professional practice.    


Do I Get University Credit? Yes. Once you successfully complete the course, you will earn SNHU graduate-level credit. You can either register for a 3-credit version of the course or a 6-credit version of the course. Once credit has been earned and posted to your student record, you will be able to request an official SNHU transcript that documents this credit.  At the end of the course, you can request your transcript by contacting
