The Forum Launches New Curriculum Resources

Visit The Forum’s Curriculum page now to explore two new resources aimed at providing inspiration and sharing great ideas for education abroad curriculum design from pre-departure through re-entry.
The Curriculum Toolbox (which replaces the Curriculum Cooperative) features syllabi, assignments, and course and program profiles submitted by faculty and practitioners in the field of education abroad, including past winners of the Award for Excellence in Education Abroad Curriculum Design. All contributions have been vetted against a rubric based on the Standards of Good Practice for Education Abroad.
The Education Abroad Digital Resource Center, a collaboration with The New York Times in Education, highlights the creative ways that education abroad faculty and professionals use the high-quality journalism and rich, interactive content of The New York Times to enhance student learning while keeping in touch with news from home.
The Forum would like to thank the members of the Curriculum Toolbox Working Group and the participants in The Forum-NYTimes Pilot Program for their hard work and contributions in preparing these resources.
