Center for International Education: Institute for Research and Exchange: Teaching Excellence and Achievement Award

In collaboration with the Center for International Education, several CEHD faculty members have been awarded Teaching Excellence and Achievement Award Projects for the last four years. This project brings together teachers of English and Social Studies from Eurasia and South Asia and works to (1) improve teaching in participating countries, (2) provide international educators with an important professional development opportunities, (3) create among educators a deeper understanding of the United States, and (4) develop productive and lasting relationships and mutual understanding between international teachers and their students. The project, sponsored by the Institute for Research and Exchange (IREX) and the U.S. Department of State, culminates in the development of professional portfolios to be shared with colleagues upon return.
