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/her own expertise and we will match with KNU existing course.
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). KNU offers the summer program only from 2014.
TTo 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.
