The U.S. Embassy is pleased to announce recruitment for the Study of the U.S. Institutes for Secondary Educators. Candidate applications may be sent to: PublicAffairsGaborone@state.gov until Thursday, February 14th, 2019.
The Study of the U.S. Institutes (SUSI) for Secondary Educators are intensive post-graduate level academic programs with integrated study tours whose purpose is to provide foreign secondary school educators and administrators the opportunity to deepen their understanding of U.S. society, culture, values, and institutions. The ultimate goal of the Institutes is to strengthen curricula and to enhance the quality of teaching about the United States in secondary schools and other academic institutions abroad. Prospective applicants are encouraged to visit the following website page to obtain general information about the Institutes: http://exchanges.state.gov/susi
Pending FY 2019 funding and final ECA grant approvals, the SUSIs for Secondary Educators will take place over the course of five weeks beginning in early June 2019. Three Institutes for Secondary Educators will be offered, two with a focus on classroom teachers and the third with a focus on administrators including teacher trainers, curriculum developers, textbook writers, and ministry of education officials, among others. Each Institute will have 20 participants and will include a four-week academic residency component and a one-week integrated study tour.
