USC - Korea Academy for Educators (USC - KAFE)

K-12 Teacher Education about Korea

The USC Korean Studies Institute is deeply involved in K-12 teacher education about Korea. Each summer, KSI and the Korea Academy for Educators hosts a week-long program that brings teachers from around the United States to learn from prominent scholars about Korean history, culture, contemporary issues, and Korean-Americans in order to bring Korean studies into the classroom. Last year over 60 teachers participated from 30 different states. Our partner, the Korea Academy for Educators (KAFE) is the only national organization that helps K-12 educators learn about Korea.  Funded in part by the Korea Foundation, our teacher education program is the largest and oldest program in the United States.

The 12th annual USC - KAFE Summer Seminar for K-12 teachers will take place at USC from July 12-17, 2015
