- To enhance English language skills;
- To learn new pedagogical theory and practice; and
- To gain personal experience of American culture.
The United Education Alliance (UEA) of California was appointed by the Jiangsu Education Association for International Exchange under the Ministry of Education of Jiangsu Province to design and implement professional and cultural programs abroad for educators. Together with the UEA as our partner we have designed a program to meet these goals. Activities at UCCS and the surrounding community will involve workshops on educational technology, counseling, special education, curriculum design, and the American higher education system, classroom observations; ESL classes; one-on-one meetings with UCCS faculty members; small group interactions with administration: cultural activities; and much more.
