CES will be hosting two-day study tours on UNC-Chapel Hill’s campus open to K-12 and Community College Educators. Each tour will focus on two themes: “The European Union Today: the EU as a Global and Local Actor” and “The European Union Citizen: Issues Facing the Contemporary European.”
Participants will be able to receive certification of two continuing education credits and approximately 20 hours of professional development provided they complete the post-tour lesson plan and module creation. Hotel accommodations will be provided to selected applicants for the nights of the conference – recipients will be contacted with more details if selected. The application will be live soon and sent out via our newsletter and posted on our website.
Each year, the UNC Center for European Studies chooses a North Carolina cohort of undergraduate students, K-12 teachers, and community college instructors to join a study tour to Brussels, Belgium. This tour, organized by the University of Pittsburgh’s European Studies Center, is a five-day professional development opportunity to learn about the European Union in collaboration with university partners from across the nation. The Brussels Study Tour is by no means a leisure tour – you will have high-level briefings with EU officials and make important networking connections, while having fun along the way.
For those students and educators with a strong interest in European Studies, this study tour will provide you with the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge and experiences to further your understanding of Europe and the European Union.
