The project is designed to assist faculty in a consortium of two-year public colleges in the Midwest region (called the Midwest Institute for IIE) to create curriculum, provide for professional development, and foster institutional collaboration. The selected faculty will participate in the project and become conduits for educating their students, provide services to local community, and facilitate a better understanding about China.
The twenty faculty will be involved in a three phase project: a) readings, training workshops and pre departure orientation; b) overseas lectures/workshops and project development; and c) post trip completion of curriculum modules, production of a curriculum handbook, a CD-ROM on video and photos from the trip, and implementation of college and community projects.
The twenty faculty selected to participate in the project represent a good mix of disciplines in arts, communications, humanities, and social sciences, as well as, personal and professional background. The study tour will last about five weeks.
