The Office of International Programs announces the 2014 grant program designed to develop faculty capacity to establish overseas research and academic partnerships. Rather than sending faculty as individuals to many institutions as found within the Study Abroad and Student Exchange grants programs, this program complements these others by bringing small groups of selected faculty to specific overseas partners in a region or country to explore collaborative research and teaching possibilities. The global partners to be visited this year are located within Korea and Taiwan. Priority for faculty participation will be given to faculty who do not already have overseas experience or networks.
Successful applicants will travel as a group over the course of a week to meet with university and governmental partners to explore and establish partnerships and collaborations in many forms - as appropriate to the faculty member and the discipline. All programming logistics will be handled by OIP, and travel will take place at the end of October 2014 and/or mid-December 2014. Faculty participants must be able to travel within the timeframe designated for the program.
Applications for participation should not exceed two pages and should be submitted to Dr. Andrew Gillespie, assistant provost for International Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org. A proposal should include:
The Office of International Programs announces the 2014 grant competition for the development of faculty-led study abroad programs and student exchange programs. This program will provide grants to individual faculty or small faculty groups representing departments to increase study abroad participation. These seed funds are to be used to develop new programs which will be integrated into departmental curricula in ways that promote academic and financial sustainability. Priority will be given to departments and programs that do not yet have established alternatives for their majors. Study abroad programs should be strategic, articulating with an established plan for internationalization within a college or department, and integrated into the department's offerings so that students can participate without adding to their time to graduation. Faculty should develop programs in collaboration with their departmental colleagues, heads, and College/School academic leadership. Submissions will be shared with Colleges/Schools to facilitate coordination.
Awards will be in the range of $5000, typically used for international travel to establish academic programming and program logistics. Proposals should not exceed two pages and should be submitted by October 1 to Dr. Andrew Gillespie, assistant provost for International Programs at email@example.com. A proposal should include:
The Office of International Programs announces a grant competition for the development of concurrent international linkages within on-campus courses and/or the internationalization of course material (or creation of new courses) within the curriculum. Recognizing that not all students have the opportunity to study overseas, OIP seeks to internationalize the Auburn experience by linking Auburn classrooms with classrooms around the world through technology and by infusing international material into existing or new courses. As sister institutions overseas are often teaching similar material to similar students, we seek to connect our students to their international peers to learn together through joint lectures, projects, performances, design groups, discussion groups, and other pedagogical methods suitable to the particular course and instructor. International collaborations might use asynchronous and/or synchronous platforms, course management software, shared workspaces, white-boarding applications, web conferencing software, and/or similar products. And with all disciplines today being global in nature and scope, OIP seeks to assist faculty in incorporating international examples, photos and video, points of view, ideas, case studies, and other international material into courses found within the respective departmental curricula. This seed grant program will provide funds to individual faculty, or small faculty groups representing departments, to create these international experiences for our Auburn students on campus.
Awards will be in the range of $5000, typically used for international travel to establish collaborative academic programming and program logistics, or to collect international materials. Submissions will be shared with Colleges/Schools to facilitate coordination. Proposals should not exceed two pages and should be submitted by October 1 to Dr. Andrew Gillespie, assistant provost for International Programs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
