- A course that occurs abroad during 1-6 weeks of structured study travel during Duquesne’s summer sessions from May-July.
- It is a particularly good value for students because the University lets summer tuition apply toward the costs of the trip.
- Typically, you and another colleague will co-lead a group of 15-students.
Take a look at the most recently offered programs.
There are many challenges involved in taking students abroad in both an academic and a supervisory sense. Your course will be entirely different from traditional classroom teaching, so your pedagogies will necessarily be different. And you will be taking on responsibilities for your students’ welfare in ways with which you may be unfamiliar. But don’t let this intimidate you: You will also find yourself greatly enriched and excited about your own learning and your students’ learning in this international setting.
If this is for you, here are the steps:
Step 1: Begin the thinking. Brainstorm with Dr. Jean Anne Hattler at x6578 or Dr. Roberta C. Aronson at x1818 in the OIP
Step 2: Consider the Development Cycle and Calendar
Step 3: Develop your Proposal and submit it to the University-wide committee for approval – the ABCs.
