Teaching and Learning Faculty Field School in Grenada – Faculty Application

Employee Application Deadline: December 13, 2019

This field school can be used as an elective credit in the NSCC Adult Education Foundations Certificate. NSCC Faculty may be able to access their Individual Learning Account towards the program fee for the field school.

Participants in this teaching field school will have an opportunity to learn about and develop new teaching strategies while developing an international community of practice with faculty and students at the TA Marryshow Community College (TAMCC) in Grenada.   Learning experiences to enhance your NSCC classroom will include sharing of best practices, preparing and delivering lessons, participating in peer feedback, participating in culture experiences, and observing  NSCC/TAMCC student projects.
NSCC has been working with TAMCC in 2013 on a Government of Canada project (managed by Colleges and Institutes Canada) on developing new curriculum for a program in Cultural and Creative Industries (watch this video and learn more about this partnership). Collaboration continues with TAMCC through student projects on cultural entrepreneurship and solar technology.

Field School Course Description

Through experiential learning, participants will identify learning goals for integrating international and experiential learning into teaching practice with a goal to better create inclusive and innovative learning environments. Participants will also examine how culture influences teaching practice, and experience how technical training impacts economic and social development.
