To encourage collaboration between partner institutions and provide a special international education experience for KNU students. It is also hoped that visiting scholars will explore possible research links with their host department during their stay at KNU, and encourage further collaboration on student and faculty levels once they return to their own institution.
Applicants can either choose a course from the KNU Course List given below or propose their own course. (N.B. Due to advance summer school planning issues, priority will be given to applicants who choose courses from the KNU Course List).
Each visiting scholar will be required to teach 1 three-credit course (45 hours of class contact) over a period of 4 weeks, which is scheduled as 3-hour classes, 4 times a week.
KNU will offer the summer program only from 2014.
To attract a broader range of students, we prefer visiting scholars to teach introductory-level courses that do not have prerequisites, although this can be discussed further with the host department.
Where possible, we would like to encourage the use of interactive teaching methods.
Given the short duration of the summer/winter sessions, we prefer that students are given handouts, instead of being required to purchase a text book.
N.B. In rare cases, a course may be cancelled due to insufficient student registration.
