The University of Illinois and The European Union Center (EUC) invites K-12 and community college educators to take part in annual summer workshops to develop a more effective curriculum on the European Union. These materials may be incorporated into a variety of courses, such as foreign language, world geography, world cultures, world/US history, politics, economics, and business.
While all K-16 teachers are welcome, the curriculum materials are geared mainly towards high school and community college education. The workshop will feature presentations from University of Illinois faculty and other specialists. Participating Illinois teachers receive CPDUs, and non-Illinois teachers receive University of Illinois CEUs.
Funded in part by the U.S. Department of Education Title VI grant
