Faculty Development and Campus Internationalization: A Case Study
MetadataShow full item record
Few studies have measured the impact of a short-term faculty overseas teaching experience on the internationalization of their home campus, through teaching, research, and service. This case study filled that gap and contributed to the understanding of the impact of bourgeoning educational exchanges between American and Chinese universities. The findings of this qualitative case study demonstrate a mixture of personal and professional motivations to participate in the Chinese Cultural Exchange Program between 2004 and 2008. Faculty who participated in CCEP contributed to campus internationalization in part by creating new courses, collecting data for research, adjusting teaching styles, working with international students and leading international programs and activities. In general, this study concluded that a short-term overseas teaching experience impacts on teaching, research, and service in the internationalizing a campus.
