About EU in NC
The “EU in NC” Study Tours are intensive, development experiences for educators from across North Carolina. The Tours provide K-12, community college, and HBCU/MSI educators with in-depth knowledge of Europe critical for developing lesson plans and finding resources for teaching about contemporary Europe. The tours include meetings, discussions, and interactive sessions with faculty experts and practitioners in the Triangle on contemporary Europe and the EU. These sessions will both inform educators about European topics, and show them how to integrate content learned into the classroom.
Study tour participants 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.
Meals and hotel accommodations are provided for the tour. Partial mileage reimbursement is available to selected applicants.
