Fulbright Distinguished Awards in Teaching Program 2016-17
The Fulbright Distinguished Awards in Teaching Program is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and is administered by the Institute of International Education (IIE). It seeks to promote mutual understanding among teachers, their schools and communities in the U.S. and abroad by:
- Building teachers' and students' global competence
- Sharing of best educational practices internationally
Participants in this three to six month program are based at university-level schools of education. They take courses, lead master classes and seminars, visit local schools, collaborate with each other online and in person, and complete an inquiry project of their own design.
Teachers may travel to Botswana, Chile, Finland, India, Israel, Mexico, Morocco, Netherlands, Palestinian Territories, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and Vietnam.
