The European Union Center at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, invites K-12 educators to take part in a 3-day summer curriculum workshop aimed at developing a more effective curriculum on the European Union. These materials may be incorporated into courses such as geography, government, politics, civics, foreign languages, world/U.S. history, and economics. Illinois teachers will receive 20 non-credit Professional Development Hours (PDH) and non-Illinois teachers will receive 2.0 non-credit Continuing Education Units (CEU) for participating in this workshop.
The 2020 summer curriculum workshop will be run from Monday, June 22 to Thursday, June 25. The workshop theme is “From Conflict to Peace: The European Union Explained — How the EU Came to Be, How It All Works Today, and Its Greatest Challenges.” For more information and a tentative schedule, see here: https://europe.illinois.edu/resources/k-12-resources/summer-curriculum-workshop.
The cost of attending the workshop will be $90, payable by check to “University of Illinois.” Included in the attendance fee are three nights of lodging at Illini Tower and parking for the duration of the workshop. Breakfast and lunch will be provided June 23-25, and dinner will be provided on June 22. Participants will be expected to cover their own dinners on June 23 and 24. The EU Center will also provide a travel reimbursement of up to $150 based on mileage.
The workshop is limited to 15 participants on a first-come-first-serve basis. Questions may be directed to Sydney Lazarus (firstname.lastname@example.org).
