Appalachian hosts 21 international educators enhancing their teaching skills
The Teaching Excellence and Achievement program (TEA), now in its seventh year, brings teachers from other countries to Appalachian State University to enhance their skills in teaching science and English as a foreign language.
From mid-September through Oct. 30, this year’s TEA Fellows are in the High Country learning about:
- student-centered teaching approaches that are highly engaging
- project-based teaching
- instructional design and assessment
- teacher-leadership throughout their careers
The TEA Fellows spend four weeks on Appalachian’s campus engaged in discipline-specific workshops. Then, they spend two weeks teaching in regional schools alongside a U.S. partner teacher.
