NMAD continues to reach students and educators virtually! We have started a new, online biweekly series aimed at educators and students called Diplomacy Classroom. Every other Tuesday at 1pm, NMAD education and curatorial staff highlight new stories of American diplomacy as well as online teaching materials that help educators bring diplomacy into their classrooms. Diplomacy Classroom sessions are recorded and placed on the NMAD website so educators may access the content at any time, and share it with their students when it best suits their curriculum.
Also, we have created training and supporting materials for educators so they may offer and facilitate our Diplomacy Simulation Program (DSP) with their students virtually! NMAD simulations, which organizes students in stakeholder teams representing different perspectives, invites them to play the role of diplomats using the core skills of diplomacy: composure, awareness, communication, and leadership. The groups must work together towards common solutions to hypothetical global crises. Even in a virtual environment, students are able to meet these challenges! The training materials are free, and can be found on our website, along with the free simulation materials.
