The Illinois Global Institute is pleased to announce the IGI Summer 2024 Global Educators Workshop. This workshop features two days of round-table discussions and keynote addresses focused on the theme of “Critical Thinking in the Technological World.” Educators from across the globe are invited to engage in dynamic discussions, exploring the intersection of critical thinking and technology in today’s educational landscape. 

Join us for a series of illuminating sessions designed to deepen your understanding of how critical thinking skills can be cultivated in and beyond the classroom amidst the rapid advancement of the technological era. From insightful keynote presentations to interactive roundtables, participants will gain invaluable insights and practical strategies to empower their students to navigate the complexities of the modern world.
