Extending the Walls of the Classroom: Infusing South Asia into Harper College (GEC)As it prepares to transition to Asia as its next Global Region of Focus for the academic years 2020-2023, the Office of International Education is offering its third Faculty International GEC and International Field Seminar. The on-campus GEC will include five mandatory face-to-face meetings of three hours each and a minimum of two additional excursions and/or interactive programs. As in the case of the previous iterations of the Faculty International GEC, participants will study global learning outcomes and assessment techniques, review effective study abroad design, acquire new competencies in inter-cultural communication, create curriculum projects for infusion upon their return, and gain the ability to mentor students based on their field experiences in South Asia. Faculty who complete the on-campus GEC will be eligible to apply for a Field Seminar GEC that includes an international field experience in South Asia.

This seminar is planned for faculty from a variety of disciplines represented on campus. The course is equally suited to faculty who are new to the concept of internationalization and to those who are familiar with the practice. View info session presentation.
