Asian Links: Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Start Date: June 27, 2018
End Date: July 13, 2018

Type of Course: Study Tours
Audience: Teachers who have successfully completed a minimum of 30 hours of NCTA-sponsored professional development programs are eligible to apply. Teachers who have previously participated in a NCTA-sponsored study tour are not eligible. In general it is our aim to choose teachers who made the most of earlier NCTA opportunities and who are likely to make effective classroom use of this trip.
Course Description: In addition to examining historical connections within and beyond Asia, the trip will examine China’s belt and road ambitions and Taiwan’s efforts to strengthen ties to Southeast Asia. Those completing all tour/seminar requirements receive a completion certificate and are eligible for USC continuing education units.
