Transatlantic Educators Lecture Series

Transatlantic Educators Lecture Series

A series of presentations by teachers for teachers, the Transatlantic Educators Lecture Series is a new K-12 initiative by the European Union Center at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. In these presentations, teachers from Europe and the U.S. will explore an education-related issue that is tied to a local and/or national context. All presentations will take place on a Saturday at 11 A.M. Central Time.


There will be three presentations in fall 2020. You may register at any time and attend any or all of the presentations in this series. For more information on the schedule and the presentations, please see here


Illinois teachers can receive up to 4.5 ISBE PDHs (Professional Development Hours), depending on number of hours attended. Each participant's number of hours attended will be calculated based on Zoom attendance data, rounded up to the nearest quarter hour. For example, if you attended for 190 minutes, you will receive 3.25 PDHs. Illinois teachers planning to use this lecture series as a PDH activity will receive documentation in December 2020.
