Organizer

Korean National Studies Seminar

 

The National Korean Studies Seminar is dedicated to informing educators about Korea’s history and culture and the Korean American experience in order to promote cross-cultural understanding. It is the only national organization organized by experienced award-winning educators to offer opportunities for K-12 educators of all disciplines to learn about Korean history and culture, Korean American students and their families. The National Korean Studies Seminar is being organized in 2014 by Sung Kim and Mary Connor who have carried out more than 100 days of workshops for ten years throughout the United States. They have also created many lessons and nearly 30 Power Point lectures, published over 25 articles on Korean history and culture in leading journals and recruited educators to participate in workshops from coast to coast. Both organizers have received awards from the Republic of South Korea and national organizations within the United States.
