The Stanford Korean Studies Program (KSP) and the Stanford Program on International and Cross-Cultural Education (SPICE), with support from Hana Financial Group, are offering a very exciting and intensive professional development opportunity for secondary school teachers: The Hana–Stanford Conference on Korea for U.S. Secondary School Teachers. This three-day summer conference will feature scholarly lectures and curricular presentations on topics such as Korean history, North Korea, inter-Korean relations, politics, economics, culture, and U.S.–Korean relations. We hope to bring together educators who are interested in incorporating Korean studies into their curricula and to provide a venue for them to learn and exchange ideas.

All conference meals and registration costs will be covered by the conference. For those who reside more than 50 miles from Stanford University, shared hotel accommodations and reasonable airfare expenses will be covered. Each teacher will be given a $300 stipend to cover incidental expenses and also receive an excellent selection of books and complimentary teaching materials about Korea. In addition, teachers can earn an optional 2 units of credit from Stanford Continuing Studies. 

The conference will take place from July 28 to 30, 2014 at Stanford University. Space is limited to 30 teachers from secondary schools throughout the United States. Teachers from out of town are encouraged to arrive on July 27, 2014.
