IETC serves educators from public, private and international schools seeking research-based effective practice professional development, and is committed to continuously refining and improving the training model through the process of Research - Practice - Application. It offers a Certificate of International Teaching Pedagogy consisting of three required foundational courses and one pre-selected elective course. The certificate will recognize engagement in training designed particularly for teachers working or intending to work in international education contexts. Additionally, participants have the option of obtaining approved graduate credit at an additional cost from the State University of New York (SUNY), where courses may be transferable to their SUNY Buffalo State degree and certificate programs.

What I learned here is transformational. It changes the way that I see teaching.

David Peng, High School Math

It’s difficult to change. When I tried, I saw how my students reacted. They told me the lesson was so different and fun that they would never forget what they learned. And I know, it’s time to make a change.

Kayang Huang, Middle School English

It always tells me that teachers should make lesson plans from students' side; all activities should be student-centered and in student-friendly language.
