Faculty Learning Community

In 2014-2015, the Teaching and Learning Center and the Center for Global Programs and Studies will jointly host a faculty learning community. The topic of this faculty learning community is reflective learning in the context of study abroad, using e-portfolios.

All faculty on the Reynolda Campus are invited to apply for this learning community. Proposals are due by Wednesday September 10, 2014.

More information about the learning community and proposal process is available here.

Based on the evaluation of proposals, up to three WFU faculty members will be chosen to participate.  The Provost Office for Global Affairs will cover the program fee, which includes accommodations, two meals daily, and transportation.  Funding is also available to cover the cost of an international airline ticket up to $1500. Faculty who are selected will be responsible for any portion of their airfare over $1500 as well as passport costs or visa fees, one meal per day, personal expenses, and incidentals.

Proposals are due to Kline Harrison by December 4, 2015. Those selected will then submit their formal application to the CIEE or SIT program for which they have been awarded funding.

Your written proposal (1-2 pages) should include an explanation of how the seminar you have chosen will concretely benefit your teaching and research interests.  Also, please attach an abbreviated CV (3-5 pages only).  Preference will be given to faculty members with less international experience and to those who will use the seminar to branch out beyond their present teaching/research interests.  Send your proposal directly to Kline Harrison (harrisjk@nullwfu.edu) or Box 7688.

Questions?  Contact Kline Harrison at harrisjk@nullwfu.edu, or 758-4907.
