Welcome to information about the IGI Global Educators Workshop, round-table discussions around the context of international education.

Workshops are open to K-12 educators from around the globe, and Illinois K-12 educators are eligible to receive ISBE Professional Development Hours (PDH). Workshops focus on specific theory and practice that have varying levels of success and how they can be made to be more effective for relevant educational contexts by considering grade level, learning goals, or design. There is also be time for educators to connect with one another and share their own experiences.

This annual event is sponsored by Illinois Global Institute; Center for African Studies; Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies; Center for Global Studies; Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies; Center for South Asian and Middle Eastern Studies; European Union Center; Lemann Center for Brazilian Studies; Russian, East European, and Eurasian Studies; Women & Gender in Global Perspectives at Illinois.
