Event description

Description

Whether you’re an experienced MUN Advisor or brand new to Model UN, you’ll walk away from this workshop with time-saving tools, tactics, and strategies to help your students succeed in Model United Nations.



Over the past 10 years, we’ve worked with hundreds of MUN Advisors around the world. No matter where they teach, we’ve found that Advisors face the same challenges over and over.

We’ve developed a suite of time-saving tools, tactics, and strategies to help Advisors overcome these challenges and succeed in Model United Nations. We’ve seen Advisors use these tools to create growing, sustainable, and impactful MUN programs at their schools.

Our mission is “Model United Nations for All.” We want to make MUN accessible to students and teachers around the world by offering low-cost professional development and training opportunities featuring our tools, tactics, and strategies.

To support that mission, we’re excited to partner with MUN Advisor Monique Harrington to offer this MUN Professional Development Workshop for Advisors.



Workshop Features

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • The easiest activity for introducing students to MUN in 60 minutes or less
  • Our Stages of Simulation framework, which will help you explain MUN to students (and their parents!) in a single visual (and accompanying video)
  • The fastest and most effective way to help students research their Country Policy and write Position Papers
  • Our formula for helping students improve their Public Speaking skills
  • How to evaluate Resolutions and help students write stronger Resolutions
  • The vocabulary of MUN Rules of Procedure, including differences in procedure across MUN conferences (and countries!)


By the end of the workshop, you'll walk away with:

  • Printed materials you can share with your students
  • Links to slides, videos, and online resources you can use to prepare your students
  • Certificate of Completion showing number of hours of classroom instruction, which you can use to show continuing education units


Registration is open to 30 MUN Advisors. Fees include lunch and coffee breaks. Register today to save your seat!
