Call for Proposals: HESP Regional Seminar for Excellence in Teaching
OSI's International Higher Education Support Program (HESP) invites concept proposals for the Regional Seminar for Excellence in Teaching (ReSET).
ReSET aims to develop and nurture teaching excellence at the undergraduate level in the region of Eastern and South Eastern Europe, the Newly Independent States of the former Soviet Union, and Mongolia. The program establishes a framework for the long-term collaborative development of scholarly teaching in areas important to the region's undergraduate humanities and social sciences curricula.
Program Participants and Activities
ReSET projects involve groups of junior faculty participants from the region and international teams of resource faculty; all participating academics have current teaching positions and are dedicated to the advancement of undergraduate teaching in the region. Resource faculty are recruited for their qualities as “master teachers,” expertise on the subject and involvement in international scholarship. Long-term commitment of the participants and core resource faculty to the projects is essential.
The deadline for submitting concept proposals is September 10, 2009.
