Join Professor John Brock on one of these Study Tours

ESTONIA

Tour Dates: June 1 – 11, 2019
Application Deadline: January 20, 2019  

  • The Global Economic Education Alliance is offering an 11-day Study Tour to Estonia & Latvia for eight to ten K-12 school teachers from throughout the United States. The Study Tour will be led by Professor John Brock, Director of the Center for Economic Education at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs (UCCS), and Elbe Metsatalu Director of the Association of Teachers of Economics Estonia.

  • This tour will provide a unique educational opportunity for teachers to exchange ideas, teaching methodology and experiences in economic education with Estonian and Latvian educators as well as colleagues from other states within the U.S.

  • We strongly believe that this Study Tour to the Baltics is a highly effective way of learning about an economy and experiencing firsthand, not only the educational system, but also the reality of everyday life. Teachers who have participated in such international exchange often remark that it was “an experience of a lifetime.” The objective is that teachers return to their classrooms with renewed appreciation of the importance of economics and enthusiasm for economics education. Students will ultimately gain from their teacher’s life-changing experience.
