Join the Carolina Asia Center and Duke-UNC Consortium for Middle East Studies for
“Silk Road: Past and Present, a Workshop for Educators”
Saturday, April 8, 2017, 9:00am-5:30pm
UNC Chapel Hill
A rich history exists between Asia and the Middle East, as communication routes and vast networks of trade have continuously exchanged culture, goods, knowledge and beliefs for centuries. Join us for a day-long workshop as we explore the Silk Road and contemporary trade through art, music, and presentations by faculty and staff from UNC-Chapel Hill, UNC-Greensboro, and Duke University. This workshop is particularly relevant to world history, art, and music teachers due to the theme of cultural exchange and its role in the curriculum of these courses. This workshop is free, but registration is required. Please register here. Please see the Silk Road Worskhop Schedule here (small details still subject to change).
A small number of lodging scholarships (one night double occupancy hotel accommodations) are available for teachers traveling more than 200 round-trip miles to the training site. Please fill out this application form and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 15 to be considered for the scholarship.
Teachers will earn 9 contact hours, or .9 CEUs, by successfully participating in the entire program. 8 hours will be earned on the day of the workshop, and 1 hour will be earned by completing 2-3 readings with accompanying reading guide prior to the program.
