Application deadline is TODAY!
The USC U.S.-China Institute and the National Consortium for Teaching about Asiainvite qualified teachers to apply for our 2018 study tour to China and Taiwan.
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. Teachers are required to pay a portion of the trip cost. Freeman Foundation and Taiwan government support make the trip possible. 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 certificate and are eligible for USC continuing education units.
Congratulations to author Wu Ming-Yi and translator Darryl Sterk--their book The Stolen Bicycle was longlisted this week for the 2018 Man Booker International Prize!
