Professional Development

The Outreach Program offers thematic workshops that bring Duke and UNC scholars, community experts, and artists together with K-12 and college educators to share knowledge about many different parts of Latin American and the Caribbean. These workshops provide teachers with new curriculum materials as well as offer a space for creative collaboration.

What past participants are saying…

“Marta Civil was an excellent presenter.  I learned more about second language acquisition and really enjoyed the videos of the students.  They were explaining themselves in Spanish when they couldn’t in English, yet they were grasping the mathematical concepts.  She was well spoken and treated us as educators who care for our students.”

- Participant, Cultural Heritage Workshop, October 2013

“I felt valued as a teacher and as a person.”

-Participant, Reaching Beyond Borders Workshop, February 2013

“The web resources are extremely useful for my IB classes.”

-Participant, Reaching Beyond Borders Workshop, February 2013

I came knowing very little about Haiti
and left knowing about its unique history, its spirituality and language divide.”

- Participant, The History, Language & Arts of Haiti Workshop, December, 2014

“It has been a very rewarding experience for me as it taught me a lot of things I was unfamiliar with and now I feel more confident in my future interactions with Haitian students and parents.”

- Participant, The History, Language & Arts of Haiti Workshop, December, 2014

“The workshop was perception changing!
I feel much more equipped to approach a discussion/plan a lesson on Haiti.”
