Faculty Workshop on Developing Short-term Study Abroad Programs
The International Center is hosting a workshop for faculty who are interested in learning about the process for developing a short-term study abroad program.
Attend the Study Abroad Program Development Faculty Workshop on Tuesday, Feb. 26, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in the KF Seminar Room in Mortensen Library.
RSVP to Sarah Reuter at email@example.com by Feb. 20. Lunch will be provided.
The workshop is designed for faculty who are interested in leading a short-term study abroad program during Winterterm, spring break or Summerterm.
Participants in this workshop will:
• Gain an overview of faculty-led study abroad program models
• Learn about the international campuses and organizations that we have partnerships with, their geographic strengths, and the logistical support they can provide you
• Gain a better understanding of best practices in short-term programming
• Obtain information on how to get started on the short-term study abroad program development process
The majority (70 percent) of University of Hartford students who study abroad go on faculty-led programs. Students are always asking about opportunities to study abroad on short-term programs.
Become a part of the growing number of faculty who are leading students abroad to challenge their perspective and open their eyes to a new culture and new way of thinking. Let the world be the classroom and teach a course abroad in your discipline or an All-University Curriculum course, incorporate international service-learning, or collaborate with faculty from overseas to design a course. The options are endless!
Short-term programs typically last one to three weeks and result in three to six University of Hartford credits.
Faculty can teach an existing course abroad, develop a new course to be taught overseas, or teach a campus-based semester course with an international component over spring break.
Faculty can host a program at one of our partner campuses or work with one of our partners to coordinate logistics, housing, guest lectures, and academic site visits in almost any location around the globe.
Find all of the important information available to help in developing your next short-term program on the Faculty and Staff Resources page on the International Center website or contact Sarah Reuter at firstname.lastname@example.org or 860.768.5101.
