A Directory of International Programs in AILACTE Institutions.
Shreck, Gary L., Ed.
This directory promotes global education, emphasizes the importance of experiencing different cultures as a means of becoming sensitized to the variety of perspectives in the world, and offers students and faculty information information about a variety of international programs. Data and descriptions in the directory are based on responses (N=97) to a questionnaire sent to member institutions (N=220) in the Association of Independent Liberal Arts Colleges for Teacher Education (AILACTE). Information is offered about programs which occur in 65 countries outside of the United States, and cross referencing enables searchers to locate information by way of programs, institutions, or nations. Member institutions have agreed to act as liaisons for information about their programs. Following a foreword, preface, and introduction, the directory is organized into seven sections: (1) semester or year abroad; (2) study tours and summer programs; (3) student teaching or internship; (4) institutional exchange; (5) miscellaneous types of programs; (6) index by country; and (7) index by institution.
