Providing university faculty with the skills needed to develop and deliver academically sound, culturally relevant short-term, faculty-led study abroad programs is the focus of this workshop. The facilitators will present an overview of the building blocks involved in designing and delivering a faculty-led program; identify elements for creating a culturally relevant, outcomes-based abroad curriculum; specify the fundamentals of building a program proposal, including budget; and provide a blueprint for program marketing. A panel of seasoned program leaders will offer advice and solutions to unique challenges inherent in various types of faculty-led short-term programs.
