Teach about the Renaissance in Florence or theatre in London … supervise student fieldwork in Tanzania … lead a research seminar at one of the world’s great libraries.
ACM faculty can choose among these and other opportunities in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the U.S. to serve as program directors or visiting faculty on ACM programs during the 2010-2011 academic year.
Directors and visiting faculty are vital to the success of ACM off-campus study programs. ACM faculty ensure the academic quality of the programs and draw out the teaching moments from students’ experiences that make off-campus study so valuable.
ACM programs also offer a variety of faculty development opportunities, such as:
- Teaching a course that incorporates a “pedagogy of place” – using the location to teach in new ways;
- Overseeing students’ independent study projects that utilize the unique resources of the program’s location in creative ways;
- Working with on-site ACM staff and partners at local universities, and making professional connections;
- Living in the program location and traveling locally to lead field trips; and
- Carrying out responsibilities in student advising and orientation.
