In addition, please see below for more information from Sam:
Join the onsite faculty team of one of AHA Internationals programs in Argentina, Austria, China, England, France, Greece, Italy, Mexico, Morocco, or Spain where you will teach 1-2 courses during a term. For additional information about each academic program, please refer to the specific program page of the AHA website:
Selection is determined by: proposed courses in terms of academic quality, appropriateness for site and students, and student interest; and how well they fit with the existing curricula; proposed excursions in terms of relevance to the site and courses, feasibility, attractiveness to students, and applicant’s ability to conduct them; applicant’s experience in the country, and language ability, if relevant; teaching evaluations; applicant’s ability to lead student groups abroad; potential for professional and intercultural development on the part of the faculty applicant, ideas for, and commitment to, recruiting students for the program, and; overall quality of the application.
Where you'll live:
If selected to teach on an AHA program, you will be provided housing at the program site for the duration of your teaching assignment. Amenities vary from site to site, but in all cases faculty apartments are fully furnished and include the basic cookware, linens and other items needed for daily living. Descriptions of the housing available at each site are included in the previous links by site. Please keep in mind that each site may have certain limitations based on the housing available and that in general the apartment provided will be smaller than that to which many American families may be accustomed. For two faculty applying to team teach at a NCSA site, housing is limited to that which is provided on site for one faculty member. Additional requirements, e.g., a separate apartment, are the financial and logistical responsibility of the faculty team. Please note: Some sites require visiting faculty to provide a damage/cleaning deposit upon arrival.
How to apply:
At this time, the call for faculty applications for academic year 2013-14 has been postponed. If you are from a partnering institution and would like to be notified when the call for applications is opened, please contact email@example.com, or the study abroad representative at your home university, and we will ensure that you receive notice promptly when the call is opened.
We've scheduled this info session in conjunction with UAF's Fall 2012 Study Away Fair. If you're not able to make this info session, please feel free to drop by Sam's table at the Fair, or contact any of us for more information.
