Faculty members who wish to teach in the UL Study Abroad Program must submit the following application for consideration by the Study Abroad Committee. Faculty must hold a minimum of a master’s degree (and in some cases appropriate work experience) in the area(s) in which they propose to teach. Full-time and part-time (adjunct) instructors are invited to participate.
Each faculty member must propose two (2) courses (with the exception of those proposing to teach in Costa Rica) in order for an application to be considered by the UL Study Abroad Committee. Faculty members who propose to teach in Costa Rica must submit only one (1) course due to the short term of the program.
Faculty may submit cross-listings, but there is a limit of two (2) cross-listings per course. However, cross-listings are not required in order to be considered. Be sure to determine the compatibilty of cross-listings with the core courses and their pre-requisites.
Faculty members are responsible for obtaining course approval from the Department Head under whom the proposed courses are offered as well as approval from each Department Head for each respective cross-listing being requested for the course. For example, if faculty propose to offer an ENGL course and cross-list it as THEA, HUMN or HONR, they will need to complete the cross-listing area(s) of the faculty application. They will also need to obtain Department Head approval from ALL Department Heads (one for the original/parent ENGL course and one for each requested cross-listed course).
Once an application has been submitted, the Study Abroad Office will forward the submission to the Department Head/Program Director. The Department Head must respond to the email on whether is it approved or not. The faculty will receive weekly updates of courses that have been approved (original/parent course and each cross-listing).
A Faculty Informational Meeting has been scheduled during International Education Week for Tuesday, November 19, 2019 from 3 to 5 pm in Moody Room 125. This is wonderful opportunity to inquire about teaching abroad. However, it is extremely important that you begin the above process as soon as possible.
Faculty should submit their proposals as soon as possible in order to obtain Department Head approvals prior to the March 10, 2020, 4pm deadline.
