Workshop for Faculty & Staff: Developing and Leading Short-term Study Abroad Programs

09/13/2012

Contributed by Rachel Gould

The Office of International Programs (OIP) would like to invite all faculty and staff members to attend a workshop designed to assist in the development of short-term study abroad programs.  Short-term study abroad programming is an important component of the overseas study options available to Ithaca College students. College faculty and staff members have successfully lead programs over the past several years to a number of different locations, including most recently Belize, Canada, China, Ecuador, Ghana, Italy, Malawi, and the United Kingdom.

There will be two workshops held this year.  Both will be held in the Center for Faculty Excellence, 316 Gannett Center.  The workshops are scheduled for:

In each workshop, we will discuss program planning and development, proposal submission, safety & security measures, risk management, best practice, as well as other relevant topics. A panel of faculty members who have successfully lead programs abroad will share their experience and suggestions.  Light refreshments will be provided. 

If you are interested in attending the workshop on September 27, please RSVP to Rachel Cullenen in the OIP at rcullenen@ithaca.edu or 274-1676. We look forward to seeing you at the workshop.

If you are interested in leading  a short-term study abroad program but are not able to attend one of the workshops, please feel free to contact Rachel to schedule an individual meeting.  You can also read more about the process in the publication  Procedures for Developing and Implementing Short-term Study and Educational Travel Abroad at Ithaca College
