Free Online Course on EU

So excited to be working with the EU Center of Excellence at UNC and LEARN NC and getting ready to teach my four-week online course for North Carolina teachers! The fun begins November 28.  Read more about it here and register now! 

The European Union: An Introduction for Teachers is designed to introduce teachers to the history and function of the EU, and to support them in choosing among the EU's very useful online resources for teaching and learning. 

I developed the course to help teachers connect their knowledge of Europe (which is usually very deep) with an understanding of the EU (which most teachers would like to deepen) through online resources, including video, and discussion with peers.  The goal is to improve and increase instruction about the EU in our classrooms, especially through use of digital resources.  What's your final project?  A standards-based, technology-rich lesson plan on the EU for your classroom. 

It's free, offers 2 CEUs upon completion, and begins November 28.  Registration is open now.  If you've not yet taken an online course, please realize that I've designed it to be very user friendly.  I've developed and taught online courses before.  I really enjoy it, and want students to enjoy it, too.
