Design and Implement a Faculty-Led Study Abroad Program
This two-part professional development opportunity prepares faculty members to take their classes around the world.
In the introductory session, you’ll investigate the process of developing a faculty-led study abroad program. You will learn about the various options available for structuring a program and the responsibilities associated with being a faculty director. You’ll also learn about academics in a study abroad program, including course selection, instructional methods, out-of-class learning opportunities, and assessment.
In the advanced session, you will learn about developing the study abroad proposal, including revisions to your course syllabus. You will also begin working on the budget piece of the proposal and become familiar with recruitment strategies. Successful participants will have already completed the first session and will have a specific destination and course(s) identified in order to craft their proposals. This is a hands-on workshop, so a laptop is recommended.
A stipend is available for eligible participants who complete both sessions. Registration is required.
