Our workshops offer teachers in both the U.S and China opportunities to learn from each other, visit local schools, exchange ideas, and increase the visibility of their profession. Pace CI assists faculty from various departments at Pace University to develop cross-disciplinary courses and cross-cultural research to enhance the international curriculum and promote understanding of Chinese culture.
The purpose of this seminar is to enhance the curriculum at Pace by promoting collaboration across disciplines and developing courses with a worldwide perspective. To be considered for selection, faculty need to submit proposals to develop courses principally showcasing Chinese culture from within their disciplinary (or interdisciplinary) focus. The course must promote understanding of China and its culture, infuse Chinese culture into the curriculum, build on interest within the student population, offer experiential educational opportunities, and develop cultural exchange among faculty and students at Pace and in China.
