Teaching Development Opportunities

Global Crossroads: Themed Courses

Faculty at two or more institutions co-develop courses that involve a shared theme that has an international dimension. Funding can be requested for course materials, a summer stipend for course development ($600 per week for a maximum of three weeks), and travel support to bring course partners together for planning. Proposals will be reviewed as they are received. This program is a timely opportunity for obtaining support to develop a course for DePauw's "International Experience" general education requirement.

Please contact David Alvarez for more information.
