Our call for proposals is now open for the opportunity to teach in the UW in Scotland program. Applicants are invited to submit proposals to teach during the summer in 2025.
In successive years, pairs of UW faculty from different disciplines, and who have trained in the varied resources and transdisciplinary methods of the Abbotsford cohort, develop and teach a summer program in Scotland. Their courses typically have a first footprint at Walter Scott’s house, Abbotsford, in the Scottish Borders, then move on to other locations across the country. Courses embrace the varied resources of the region through transdisciplinary teaching.
Previous courses have included:
Courses are STRONGLY recommended to meet University Studies requirements, and faculty will be required to develop and pursue a recruitment plan.
Applications should be from PAIRS of faculty from different disciplines, and directed toward a 3-week course in Scotland for majors from across the curriculum. Successful faculty should expect to work with UW in Scotland, Education Abroad and Honors to organize their course or courses and to recruit, and to offer a 1-credit preparatory course in the Spring before they teach in Scotland. Total credits typically amount to 6, distributed over two courses. Courses that meet general education requirements as well as disciplinary ones, and the faculty’s ability to sustain, are preferred.
Deadline: 30 November 2023 (for 2025 courses)
