Faculty Development Seminars
Since 1995 the Asia Council has offered summer study/travel seminars in Asia. The target audience for the seminars is full-time faculty from University System of Georgia institutions with limited background on or experience in Asia. The aim of the seminars is to enable participants to create new courses focusing on an Asian culture, or to infuse more Asia-related content into existing courses. Seminars also enable faculty to establish contacts at Asian institutions with an eye to future exchanges and collaborative research.
Faculty Development Workshops
The Asia Council also offers Faculty Development Workshops here in Georgia. The 2014 workshop's focus is yet to be determined.
Previous workshops have focused on "Teaching South Asia" and "East Asia.". Presentations focused on History, Culture, Geography, and Politics of countries in the region.
Teach in Asia
The 2014 Summer Study Abroad in China – General Studies is inviting USG faculty members to teach for the program between May 8 and June 6, 2014. The program is sponsored by the Asia Council of the University System of Georgia (USG), and is open to all faculty and students of USG institutions.
The 2013 program is looking for faculty members who are able to teach two undergraduate courses at lower and/or upper divisions. All fields will be considered, except science courses involving labs. Please visit the program website at http://www.daltonstate.edu/china for examples of prior courses and related information. The deadline to apply for the 2014 participation is April 16, 2013.
The program will cover participating faculty’s travel costs, which include round-trip airline tickets to and from China, domestic transportation in China, lodging, entrance fees to cultural sites, and group meals. A faculty’s spouse may travel with the program but needs to pay the cost of all travel-related expenses.
