I took Mary Connor’s summer seminar in 2011, as well as the winter seminar. The information we received from the various expert was of high academic standard, and the several demonstrations throughout the week gave us a delightful insight into Korean life. I served as President of the Korean Arts Council at USC Pacific Asia Museum for one year. None of these learning experiences would have happened without these excellent seminars.
I participated in this seminar to see what would be an effective way to teach my students Korean history, art, and culture, and I was truly amazed to see what the NKS did for the K-12 teachers in attendance. These are the people who can make the changes in the field. They are the people who can directly tell their students about Korea and can make the change by going beyond what is written in their textbook. Thanks once again for hosting this great opportunity for teachers. I’ve eye-witnessed how much work and effort the hosts of the seminar put into it, and every single step was designed with lots of thoughts, care, and love for Korea. Thank you once again!
