Project Description

The Civic Education Support Pilot Project in Colombia, funded by the U.S. Department of State and implemented in partnership with the Department of Education of Antioquia (La Secretaría de Educación de Antioquia) and with the support of experts in the Miami-Dade Public School system, provided civic education training to local public school teachers and teacher trainers in Antioquia. DI used various experiential learning curricula to build upon teachers’ skills and provide them with tools to more effectively engage their students in civic education and social studies.

As part of the pilot project, DI designed a tool to conduct periodic progress assessments that measured educational outputs and outcomes that can be used for future training and subsequent assessment efforts by the Department of Education. The project was designed to create lasting relationships between teachers and teacher trainers in Colombia and the U.S. and more effectively promote collaboration, peer learning, and public exchange between the two countries.
