Faculty applications are now available for the 2015-16 Experience China programs!
Program staff will consist of two to three full time faculty members from the participating campuses. Each faculty member will serve for one term, or a single module within a full term.
The Director of International Education/Programs will recruit faculty participants on each campus. Applicants must submit a curriculum proposal for five courses they could teach during a semester in China. With the approval of appropriate university committees and official, the Director of International Education/Programs on each campus will recommend candidates for nomination to the Experience China faculty.
The deadline for applications is May 30, 2014. The intent of this amount of lead time is to give potential students information on courses to be offered so they can more easily participate in the program. Please complete the Faculty Application.
Nominations will be brought to a meeting of the ExC Advisory Committee who will select the program staff for the upcoming year. This selection process will be based primarily upon concerns for the development of a well rounded study abroad curriculum. The selection committee will decide which faculty members from the campuses will receive the Scottish teaching assignment, and it will also decide which courses that person will teach.
Recommendations for faculty selection will be made in early spring immediately following the deadline for applications. Contracts will be finalized as soon as possible by local campus procedures (i.e., a letter of appointment from the Vice Chancellor identifying expectations).
After the foundation curriculum has been selected, the ExC Advisory Committee may recommend that the on-site staff recruit additional adjunct Chinese faculty to supplement existing course offerings.
Change (emergency) will be done by consultation with the ExC Program Director and the responsible campus.
