WhenFriday, April 19, 2013
8:30am - 11:00am
WhereSLA - Louise Slaughter Hall (78),
Event ContactMichael Starenko
Presenter: Jeff Noblett.
This session, the third and final one in the series, is specifically intended for faculty and staff who are likely to engage in an intensive travel study program in January 2014. It will be facilitated by Dr. Jeff Noblett, Colorado College’s Associate Dean of the Faculty. Participants in this workshop may consider attending Dr. Nobelett’s Intensive Course Design Plenary and Q & A session on April 18, 2013.
With its three-week duration, the January intersession provides an exceptional opportunity to create intensive travel study learning opportunities for our students at very reasonable prices as compared with similar, longer-term programs. However, due to their intensive and immersive nature, these travel study courses need to be carefully planned and executed.
The goals for this session are for participants to understand:
- How to factor in the time needed for change in time zones and cultural adaptation
- How to leverage the location’s geographical, social and cultural characteristics for effective instructional delivery of a travel study course
- How to factor field research into the design of an intensive travel study course
Prerequisites: Participants must be committed to teaching a January 2014 TigerTermSM travel study course.
Registration: This session is open to all faculty, staff, and administrators who are likely to facilitate, administrate or participate in an intensive January 2014 travel study program. Because seating is limited to 25 participants, the required registration on this site is on a first come, first served basis. Once registration reaches capacity, would-be participants will be placed on a waiting list.
Please direct all questions to Carole Miller (C.Miller@rit.edu).
No meals or snacks will be provided.
The deadline to register for this event is Monday, April 15, 2013 at 11:59pm.
