Faculty Development

Global Education Seminar

The Global Education Seminar serves as a key element for supporting academic units’ strategic plans for internationalization. The program is an educational and scholarly initiative, providing an exciting opportunity for a coordinated team of faculty to be immersed in international locales, with intensive faculty study about a strategic site in advance of the three-week exploratory visit. The initiative seeks to broaden the pedagogical and scholarly horizons of faculty members, providing them with concrete, site-specific resources and relationships that can motivate and shape revision of the courses they teach, as well as inform additional international collaborations.

Chaminade Seminar

Piloted in the spring and summer of 2011, the Chaminade Seminar introduces faculty to the lives and times of Marianist Founders while exploring UD's Marianist heritage. Through seminar sessions, and travel to France and Spain to follow in the footsteps of Blessed Father Chaminade, faculty examine how the Marianist heritage informs the lives and times of the University of Dayton community today. Upon return to campus in the fall, participants design projects related to their new understanding of and connection to UD's mission and identity. For further information, contact Father Joe Kozar, S.M. in the Rector’s Office.
