Changing Mindsets through the ETA Program: October 25

To celebrate 75 years of Fulbright worldwide and 30 years of Fulbright programs in the Czech Republic we will host online panel “Changing Mindsets, New Opportunities & New Partnerships through the ETA Program” on Monday, October 25, starting at 6 pm CEST on the ZOOM platform. The event is organized jointly by the Fulbright Commissions from the Czech Republic, Germany, Poland and the Slovak Republic on the occasion of Czech Fulbright Commission Country Day.

The panel will present the achievements of Fulbright English Teaching Assistants from four European countries and the long-term impacts that their Fulbright grants have had on themselves and their host communities. Alumni of Fulbright Czech Republic, Poland, Germany and Slovak Republic will discuss: (1) changing perspectives through art, (2) supporting and promoting diversity, (3) expanding worldviews and future study and career opportunities and (4) the power of international exchange for educators.

The online event will have a mixed format of a moderated panel with the participation of Fulbright Commission Executive Directors. ETA Program alumni will share their stories and explore their themes in greater detail in four breakout rooms, encouraging a discussion with the audience. Participants will have the option to join the breakout room of their preference.
