Past Teacher Conferences

Our past Teacher Outreach Conferences are listed below. In addition to the ISEEES annual teacher outreach conference, four conferences on the Caucasus were held from AY 1995-1996 through AY 1998-1999. Below each conference title are the conference schedule and some of the reference materials that were distributed.

We encourage educators to contact us with specific requests, general questions, or suggestions for improving our outreach programs. Please contact Andrei Dubinsky at (510) 642-7904 or iseees@berkeley.edu .

Teacher Outreach Conferences are made possible by a Title VI grant from the US Department of Education.
