Saturday, March 22, 2014

Northern Illinois University - Naperville, Illinois

 

The future may well be decided in Southeast Asia, one of the world's most economically dynamic and culturally diverse regions. With its eleven countries strategically located on the mainland and islands in the Asia Pacific, Southeast Asia is the largest destination of U.S. investment in Asia.

If you are teaching or planning to teach a course or a unit about Asia or Global Studies, Northern Illinois University's Center for Southeast Asian Studies invites you to join us for a one-day seminar on Burma/Myanmar designed exclusively for college and upper-level high school educators.  This is a unique opportunity for you to interact with your colleagues about teaching Southeast Asian: 

•  History and politics     •  Current events      •  Religions and cultures    

•  Human rights     •  Art and literature

Registration is now available.  Free registration includes networking luncheon, morning and afternoon refreshments and materials.  CEUs and CPDUs are also available upon request for Illinois educators.  Please register by March 10.  Check here for seminar registration.  (Registration form may open differently depending on web browser used). First 20 non-NIU educators to register and complete the seminar will receive a $75 stipend.

Any questions, contact Julia Lamb, Outreach Coordinator, NIU Center for Southeast Asian Studies; jlamb@niu.edu or 815-753-1595.
