Faculty grants of $2,500 a project are available specifically to develop and support international courses taught via videoconferencing in cooperation with an overseas institution. Grant recipients must be available to attend the Faculty Seminar May 14, 15, 16 - a structured program in which faculty will gather to develop new courses or modify existing curricula to integrate international videoconferencing and the unique learning opportunities it offers.
