In the summer of 2023, 16 faculty from across the United States representing a broad array of disciplines participated in a Fulbright-Hays seminar in Taiwan. They toured the island and participated in many cultural exchanges while learning about Taiwan’s politics, economics, social issues, educational system, and biodiversity. In this session, some of these faculty will discuss their experiences and how those affected their teaching. The session will include breakout rooms for economics, education, political science, and other fields to allow for more focused discussions.
The Fulbright U.S. Scholar Programs offers U.S. faculty, administrators and professionals grants to lecture, and/or conduct research in a wide variety of academic and professional fields, or to participate in seminars.
This two-part series will feature information about the Fulbright process as well as personal insights and experiences from faculty who participated in the program. All sessions will be live via Zoom and video-recorded for archival purposes.
