Global Learning: A World of Opportunity for Appalachian Students
Education Abroad Training Funding Opportunities
Education Abroad Training Funding Opportunities seek to increase the number and quality of short-term faculty-led programs by involving faculty and staff who are interested in leading, but who have not yet led, a study abroad program for students. Faculty and staff who are awarded funds are expected to lead a successful short-term faculty-led program within two years of their participation in the training.
Possible activities for Education Abroad Training Funding Opportunities include: bringing to campus guest speakers, experts, or consultants in study abroad; offering a syllabus development workshop for study abroad courses; organizing a multi-day retreat for a group of faculty to study best practice in pre-departure, re-entry, and/or reflection assignments; developing short courses or online modules to train faculty and staff in best practice; establishing connections with international partner institutions for study abroad collaborations; and the like.
