Everyone loves a good story, especially students. So what better way to enhance learning than for faculty to teach abroad and bring back to the classroom first-hand accounts of life in a different culture?

University System of Georgia faculty development programs, the Fulbright Scholar Program and faculty exchange programs are some of the opportunities for teaching abroad available to KSU faculty.
Programs in Chile, China, Czech Republic, Ghana, India, Mexico, Thailand and Tunisia are just a few of the places faculty have traveled to teach courses in subjects as varied as nursing and visual arts in Mexico to criminal justice in Thailand and biotechnology in India.

Infusion of these experiences can help faculty change students’ knowledge, skills and attitudes and values.

“I’ve found that students relate more to personal stories of ‘I went to Greece and did this, and I experienced this,’ versus talking about what someone else did once upon a time,” Dr. Susan Smith, who has taught introduction to anthropology in Greece, said. “It makes much more of an impact.”
