On February 24th, 2018, the Penn Middle East Center and the Pennsylvania Council for International Education (PACIE) collaborated to host the "PACIE-Penn Middle East Center "Educating the Educator" Workshop, Nationalism and Identity in the Era of Colonialism" Teacher Training Workshop. The objective of the workshop was to facilitate the teaching at the high school level of complex issues such as Colonialism, Nationalism and identity. By offering lectures and hands-on interactive modules which incorporate both maps and facilitated discussions on nationalism and identity the hope is that the teachers will find useful tools that they can incorporate in their teaching.
