Hotchkiss is excited to be working with Research Schools International (RSI), led by Christina Hinton from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, on a global study of international understanding in Round Square.
The two-year international study will explore how educators in the RSI community of 180 schools in 50 countries support students' development of international understanding. Students and teachers in all schools will be invited to contribute to the study their reflections on students' global competencies, how the school supports students to develop those competencies, and which activities and approaches they believe are most effective in supporting their development.
In establishing the research project, Round Square invited applications from its 180 candidate and member schools. The research team selected 12 schools to participate either in the role of Research Fellow and Research Ambassador.
