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 teach his/herown expertise and we will match it with a KNU existing course. Please refer to KNU Academic Programs- undergraduate to check if your expertise is offered at KNU.
Each visiting scholar will be required to teach 1 three-credit course (45 hours of class contact) over a period of 3 weeks, which is scheduled as 3-hour classes, Monday through Friday(9-12am). Mid-term and final exams are included within 3 weeks.
If possible, we would like to introduce office hours for giving feedback/comments to KNU students. It can be scheduled after class.
We would like to encourage the use of interactive teaching methods to KNU students.Given the short duration, 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.
