Visiting Western Professor Program
This development program is offered to undergraduate, postgraduate and junior faculty in China. Eight Western professors will travel to Chinese universities and teach intensive seminars or mini-courses. These seminars could last ten days to one month in China. We may also be able to secure teachers for a semester.
We can supply excellent scholars/teachers on topics in values and virtues to teach these classes.
Mini-courses/seminars during the semester
At a time convenient for your university’s students and faculty, we could send a professor to teach a mini-course or augment an existing course for your students. A mini-course during the semester would meet 2 1/2 – 3 hours per day; in addition, the visiting professors could offer more general public lectures. US professors are likely to be available during their fall (usually in October) and spring breaks (usually in March), as well as at the end of their spring semesters (May and June).
We may be able to identify philosophers who are interested in teaching semester-long courses.
We will pay the US/British professors an honorarium and the professors' travel expenses. We are asking each host university to cover room and board for the US/British professors, banquet, publicity, and a graduate student assistant. We'd also like local professors or students to take the visiting professors sightseeing/shopping.
If you are interested in hosting a Western professor, please send an email message to Nellie Kooistra (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your preferred options (1-2 above) and preferred dates. We will send you a list of available professors, topics, and their available dates.
