Professional development and training workshops for educators are an important component of outreach activities at the Center for East Asian Studies that are supported by the United States Department of Education and crafted in coordination with other UChicago Title VI National Resource Centers. Workshops are designed by university faculty, graduate students, and Center staff to enhance classroom curriculum in local public and private high schools and community colleges. Workshops introduce pedagogical methods and materials that facilitate the study of East Asia in the classroom and address a variety of subjects.
