Partners in Education:

Working Together to Enhance the Teaching of Latin America

 

Cusco, Peru

July 5 - August 16, 2015

 

Application Deadline: April 15, 2015

 

Through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad program, Towson University will provide an immersion experience in Peru for six weeks this summer for fifteen in-service educators. The goal of the project is to enhance educators’ Spanish language competence and to develop intercultural competence and knowledge of Latin American culture. The project has the added purpose of helping teachers create units of study for use in their classrooms and schools, and to share in their communities and to disseminate widely. Towson University faculty and selected teachers from across the nation will work together to achieve these goals.

 

The program includes pre- and post-departure activities and a six-week immersion experience in Cusco, Peru. The pre-departure communication, planning and orientation will take place online in May 2015. The post-immersion activities will be completed by Spring 2016. For the immersion experience in Cusco from July 5 to August 16,  fifteen educators led by two Towson University faculty, Dr. Colleen Ebacher, Spanish, and Dr. Ronn Pineo, History, will participate in language study, lectures, interviews, home stays, excursions, workshops and cultural activities as they explore issues central to Latin America. They will learn firsthand about the history, literature, art and architecture, indigenous peoples, agriculture, biodiversity of rural Peru, and modern Peru’s economy
