The European Union: Where to From Here?

Date: April 16, 2018

Time: 9:00 am to 5:00 pm

 

NESA Accreditation Completing the 2018 EU Intensive Short Course for Secondary School Teachers will contribute 12 hours of NESA Registered PD addressing 5.1.2, 6.2.2, 6.3.2, and 6.4.2 from the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers towards maintaining Proficient Teacher Accreditation in NSW.

In this course on the European Union you will hear specialists’ views on these issues and engage with them in discussion of the consequences and possible solutions. Together we will examine the impact of these affairs on the EU’s relationship with other nations, as EU leaders seek a stronger role in external affairs and aim to develop deeper global relationships. Australia has a stake in these matters not only in the current Free Trade Agreement with the EU, but also in working with a potentially separate UK. What might all of this mean for our region?

A Two-Day Intensive Program for Teachers of:

• History • Global/international politics

• Social and cultural studies

• Economics

• European languages

The 2018 European Studies Intensive Short Course offers a unique opportunity to engage with diverse expert speakers on topics that complement secondary school curricula. The program features interactive sessions with senior academics and practitioners, in an interdisciplinary learning environment. Two days of interaction at the conference venue will be accompanied by optional online materials and support.
