COURSE INTERNATIONALIZATION GRANT
In an effort to enhance student learning outcomes and incorporate an increased number of high-quality international course options, APSU issues this call for faculty-initiated and- developed projects to design new international options of general education core requirements and high-impact, high-enrolled courses. The Office of Academic Affairs will provide financial and academic support for faculty to incorporate international travel components in existing APSU courses. Course design will take place during Spring 2012 and will be piloted in the 2012-2013 academic year. Participation is open to all full-time faculty.
September 15, 2011: Deadline for the submission of the statement of intent
September- October 2011: Faculty development related to course internationalization
December 1, 2011: Deadline for the submission of the international course proposal
