Global Learning: A World of Opportunity for Appalachian Students
Targeted Areas Funding Opportunities
The purpose of Targeted Areas Funding Opportunities is to support selected pilot global learning programs (below). Additionally, the intended use of funds is to expand the number of global learning programs to include other similarly rich projects. Each of these programs, whether targeted or new, feature high-impact instructional practices and/or innovative uses of technologies, such as internships, travel, international videoconferencing, student research, and service learning. The intent for this support is to nurture these initiatives, institutionalize them, and use them as models for developing additional courses and curricular learning opportunities across the university.
Pilot Global Learning Programs:
- Pre-health international experience
- International student research
- U.S. based global internships
- International service learning
- Global involvement/Internship Opportunities for First Year Seminar or Capstone Experiences
For more detailed information regarding these targeted areas please visit the QEP Manual pages 24 – 27.
Proposals for projects similar to the above Targeted Areas are also sought. Such proposals must involve high-impact instructional practices and/or innovative uses of technologies, such as internships, travel, international videoconferencing, student research, and/or service-learning. Additionally, they must be deemed to have a high potential for serving as a model for others across campus.
