International Educators Workshop (IEW)
A Week in Copenhagen
DIS welcomes education abroad professionals, faculty, academic advisors, and student affairs staff to a five-day workshop in Copenhagen each semester, providing a forum for dialogue about DIS programs and broader issues in education abroad. Participants may be invited to serve on discussion session panels and are encouraged to indicate areas of expertise in workshop registration. A workshop is like a mini-semester at DIS: attend classes, participate in field studies, meet DIS staff, faculty and students, live with a host family, and get to know Danish culture and society.

- An interactive introduction to the DIS programs and curriculum, the city of Copenhagen, and to Danish culture and society.
