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.

Upcoming Workshops

Stay tuned to new programs in 2018-19

What past workshop participants are saying

“Some aspects that I found valuable were the Impact of Climate Change, and challenges we are facing due to the water problems around the world. I can use the info in my classroom to create awareness and compare/contrast the current situation in Latin America and our country.”  Teacher participant, Environmental Issues in Latin America and the Middle East Workshop, 2018

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

Participant, Reaching Beyond Borders Workshop, 2013

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

– Participant, The History, Language & Arts of Haiti Workshop, 2014
