The Central European University?s Special and Extension Program is launching new calls for applications for three of its main faculty-oriented programs. Below in this message please find short descriptions about each program, their website, the contact person and deadline for application. Soon you are going to receive three separate e-mails with the specific announcements/call for applications for each program.
After receiving the separate calls, if you would like to apply to any of the programs please be so kind as to send your application materials or questions you might have to the e-mail/postage address specified in the relevant call/announcement. These programs were designed to promote various professional development needs of a specific academic target audience, therefore we suggest that you choose the pogram/grant that suits you most at the current stage of your academic career. You might apply to more than one program if you decide so, but please be aware that each program has its own eligibility criteria and specific target audience, and you cannot receive two Special and Extension Program grants simultaneously.
These one-week sessions hosted at CEU focus on the revision and development of courses that our visitors teach at their home institutions. Each session offers an intensive week-long period for syllabus review, library work, training workshops in course design and teaching methods and meetings with CEU professors. Seminars, workshops and lectures on specialized topics are organised together with the CEU departments, and CEU classes in the relevant program are open to the visitors.
Since sessions stretch through the academic year, their deadline of application varies accordingly from 10th December to 18th February. Sessions come in three types:
Open House Sessions
are organized in broad discipline areas covered by one or more CEU departments. These sessions are intended to introduce participants to CEU's approach to a relevant discipline and new techniques for designing courses in that field. To this end the sessions will provide participants access to the facilities and resources of the CEU and the appropriate department, as well as general training workshops on course design and teaching methodology. Participants are invited to use the CEU library, visit relevant classes and meet faculty.
Course Innovation Sessions
intend to explore the cutting edge developments in a particular discipline. By discussing recent developments and exploring contemporary debates with CEU's host departments and faculty, participants are expected to revise or update their courses or offer new courses in their particular area of interest. Additional training on course development is also offered by the CRC. These sessions are organised with a strong involvement of CEU departments and are often combined with a workshop or a conference on the topic of the session.
Topical Issues in Curriculum Development
cover topical issues of particular importance to the development of higher education in the region, in all areas related to curriculum development. Organised by the CRC office in co-operation with a wide range of strategic partners, these sessions address current trends in curriculum development, degree structures and particular or special interest issues.
