Description

2018 EU INTENSIVE SHORT COURSE FOR SECONDARY SCHOOL TEACHERS

The European Union: Where to From Here?


A TWO-DAY INTENSIVE PROGRAM FOR TEACHERS OF:

  • History

  • Global/international politics

  • Social and cultural studies

  • Economics

  • European languages

The 2018 European Studies Short Course offers a unique opportunity to engage with diverse expert speakers on topics that complement secondary school curricula. Two days of interaction at the conference venue will be accompanied by optional online materials and support.

Day 1: The EU in 2018: Background and Context

Day 2: Which Way for the EU? Alternatives and Opportunities, incl. Repercussions for Australia


THEMES COVERED

  • A crash course in European institutions and history: What is the EU and how does it operate?

  • What does the EU stand for after Brexit and in a changing global environment?

  • Beyond the Free Trade Agreement between Australia and the EU: Does Australia want closer ties with the EU?

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. We also consider the impact of languages and the role of language policy. 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?

The program features interactive sessions with senior academics and practitioners, in an interdisciplinary learning environment.

Detailed program available March 2018
