There are many short-term abroad experiences for faculty who wish to spend a few weeks abroad rather than a semester. Below are a list of seminars and workshops:
DIS International Educators Workshop
The International Educators Workshop is "like a mini-semester at DIS." Participants are able to attend classes, meet DIS faculty and students, live with a host family, and serve on discussion panels. The objective for the workshop is to serve as a forum on DIS programs and broader issues in education abroad.
IAU Professional Development Workshop
IAU's Professional Development Workshop is designed to improve participants' knowledge of contemporary French language and culture. It is also a place for teachers to hone their teaching strategies as well as exchange strategies with other French teachers. Classroom and research sessions are augmented by cultural outings.
IES Faculty Development Seminars
Each year, IES offers a range of Faculty Development Seminars that are designed to bring faculty and experts from around the world together in a forum of exchange. Seminar topics range from language pedagogy to current events, and locations vary.
IES Familiarization Trips
Familiarization Trips are a good way for faculty to learn more about IES study abroad programs. Participants are able to visit with partner institutions and observe classes, as well as attend cultural excursions.
CIEE International Faculty Development Seminars
Spend one to two weeks attending lectures and taking site visits by participating in one of CIEE's International Faculty Development Seminars. Seminars are interdisciplinary and examine contemporary issues, globalization, and local perspectives. Religion, health, economic development, are just a few of themes focused on.
