The UNC-Chapel Hill and Duke Area Studies Centers, in collaboration with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, present
Indigenous – Local – Global Communities
A Professional Development Workshop for K-16 Educators
In recognition of National Native American Heritage Month in November, this year’s International Education Week workshop theme connects with indigenous communities across the globe and thinks about how different people around the world understand ideas of indigenous, local and global identities. Expert speakers from UNC-Chapel Hill and beyond will unpack case studies from Latin America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Asia that can be deployed to teach North Carolina standards for several different subjects at the Elementary, Middle, and High School levels, as well as provide teaching materials that can be used to adapt these
topics to the classroom.
Registration opens September 1 at https://areastudies.unc.edu/IEW
Participants earn 0.5 CEUs for participation in the in-person workshop on November 18. An additional 0.5 CEUs are available if participants complete the extension activities.
