Faculty Development Seminar at the University of Hyderabad, India, July 30-August 12, 2006
Co-sponsored by South Dakota State University and the University of Hyderabad
Established in 2000, and designed for non-specialists, the Faculty Seminar on India focuses on broad topics in Indian history, culture, economy, politics, higher education, religions, and language. It is designed to give participants a serious academic grounding in India’s past and present, as well as its possibilities for the future. What makes this seminar unique is that the participants themselves help determine some of the lecture topics, based on their own individual interests and backgrounds. As a result, part of each year’s seminar varies, based on the mix of participants.
Seminar members will attend morning lectures given by specialists from both the University of Hyderabad and other nearby universities and educational institutions. Afternoons are reserved for interactions between US faculty and their Indian counterparts, as well as for site visits to important places within Hyderabad. Two or three cultural programs will be held during some evenings. One weekend trip within Andhra Pradesh will also be scheduled as part of the seminar. In addition, optional yoga classes are available each morning.
The cost of the Faculty Development Seminar on India is $1,875. The seminar fee covers all lectures, meals, and lodging on campus for the two-week seminar, as well as local site visits as part of the seminar. While on campus, participants also have free access to yoga classes, and all university facilities, such as the library, computer center, sports and primary health center. The seminar fee does not include international airfare, incidentals, tips, additional touring, cost of passport or visa fees, or personal expenses.
