SAI hosted pre-departure orientation for Fulbright-Hayes Seminars Abroad program

Wed, May 28, 2008

One group traveled to India and Sri Lanka to learn about the culture and heritage of both countries and how the two are emerging into the 21st century.

A second traveled to India to participate in a new program that focuses on developing strategies for teaching math and science. They learned about the education system in India and observed the process of curriculum development, its implementation in the classroom, and the training of teachers in mathematics and science.

See what the Fulbrighters were up to by reading the blogs they are posted for their family, friends, students and colleagues.
