We hope to see you on campus soon!

SCCTA, South Carolina Center for Teaching about Asia - June 15-20, 2014


The South Carolina Center for Teaching about Asia (SCCTA) is offering this FREE residential seminar addressing social studies and global studies standards that pertain to East Asia. More details can be found at the SCCTA website.  As a residential program, this seminar has particular advantages. Participants are housed in apartment-like dorms with fellow teachers. The opportunities for informal discussions and networking are particularly rich. The speakers approach their presentations assuming that although participants teach about China and Japan, they most likely have had little opportunity for formal detailed instruction in the histories and cultures of these regions. The goal is to build confidence in teaching about these fascinating and significant “major players” in the world current students are inheriting.

How to apply:
The application can be accessed here.  Applicants who wish to be considered in the initial selection process must submit a complete application packet by April 8, 2014.  In the event spaces remain in the program after the initial selection, qualified applicants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

All participants will receive room, board and 45 contact hours of graduate instruction free of charge. Those who would like to receive three hours of graduate credit through the University may do so at a greatly reduced tuition rate.
