Program Development and Assessment

What are the components of a strong program?

The Center for Global Education has resources on program development and assessment for educators, administrators, and those currently developing both formal and nonformal learning opportunities. We also have resources specific to Chinese language learning and immersion programs.

We also offer customized support and services for schools and programs seeking support on program development and assessment.

If you are seeking support on behalf of your school or district, or if you are starting a new school, please contact Kate Kemeklis at or 212-327-9307. Or, visit the International Studies Schools Network for more information. You can also view the resources and workshops available in our ISSN catalog.

If you are seeking support on behalf of an afterschool or out-of-school time network or intermediary, please contact Heather Loewecke at or 212-327-9379. Or, visit Global Learning Beyond School for more information.
