Educator Webinars

The ILC Public Education Institute Educator Webinars give teachers the latest teaching strategies for working with immigrant students and and lesson plans for teaching about immigration in K-12 and adult classrooms. The Institute convenes the best education experts for free, professional development training every July in the two-day Immigrant Student Success virtual conference that features many experts and throughout the year for educator webinars. In addition to the online conference and webinars for educators, we host Immigrant Integration Webinars on related topics including immigrant trauma, local integration policies and re-framing the immigration narrative. We have also created “Welcome to the New World Curriculum and Learning Guide,” a series of lessons based on Welcome to the New World by Jake Halpern, a nonfiction graphic novel following the Aldabaans, a family of Syrian refugees. The curriculum is appropriate for English or social studies classes in grades seven to 11.

A wealth of resources from our webinar series, including material from the 2022 Immigrant Student Success: Strategies and Tools for K-12 and Adult Educators virtual conference, are available below.
