International Studies Summer Institute
July 7-15, 2010 ***NEW DATES***
Indiana University’s 15th annual International Studies Summer Institute for teachers of grades six and above will take place *JULY 7-15, 2010* (NEW DATES!!! One week only!).
What: U.S. teachers, grades 6 and up, join colleagues from around the world to explore the complex and interrelated topics of global food security, international trade and economics, and global migration issues. Teachers exchange views with international experts through a variety lectures, simulations, panels, and interactive communication technologies, as well as address methods for integrating global issues into their own classes. Special events include evening cultural experiences of film, food, and music. The program concludes with an international banquet.
Why: As a result of ever-increasing global interdependence and the extraordinary political, economic, social, and technological changes taking place throughout the world, the need for clear, innovative thinking about global issues has never been greater. With major programs for the study of all the major world regions, IU is uniquely qualified to offer international studies institutes of the highest quality.
Details: Teachers receive free resources on a memory stick, certification for professional education credits, and may elect to earn education graduate credits at in-state tuition rates. Participants are accepted on a first come, first served basis. A $200 registration/technology fee is required and covers all costs – see website for further details.
