Dr. Tim Kubik – “Transforming the Student Experience”
“Never, ever, close the door to your classroom. Keep it open, and invite EVERYONE in. The key to saving public education, is getting the public back into education. It’s my goal to make sure project-based learning works both ways on a global scale, to help American students better understand the world, but also, an importantly, to help students in other parts of the world contribute equaly, and with as much voice to our emerging global culture.”
Dr. Kubik has trained over 2000 teachers and volunteers to see the connections between education, policy and the politics of their communities and more importantly, to help teachers and volunteers make these connections relevant to young people working in their own communities. His lessons are based on more than 20 years’ practical experience as teacher, administrator, and consultant in K-12 through undergrad to graduate and professional programs. He served as National Faculty for the Buck Institute for Education and the Asia Society.
