|Faculty sought to teach at the American College of Norway|
The Office of International Programs is now taking faculty applications to teach at the American College of Norway (ACN) in Fall, 2010. Proposed courses must have general appeal to college students early in their academic career and essential studies courses are especially suited to ACN. Please call Ray Lagasse in the Office of International Programs for more information (777-4231).
Each semester, UND sponsors one or more faculty members at ACN to teach three courses at the sophomore level. Class sizes are typically small. Full salary, housing, and a travel stipend are paid by UND/ACN. It is expected that participating faculty will recruit UND or other American students to attend ACN along with them.
Individual UND courses taught in real time through distance delivery to (or from) ACN are now possible and allow an international exchange of ideas.
A limited number of opportunities exist at ACN for faculty on developmental leaves and there is the possibility of compensation for teaching a course to ACN students. Classes at ACN meet from Monday through Thursday leaving time for travel throughout Europe. Moss is less than an hour away from Oslo and airfares from Norway to other locations in Europe are relatively inexpensive.
International cultural experiences enrich the lives and learning experiences of both faculty and students. UND’s longstanding partnership with ACN, located in Moss, Norway, allows for international experiences in a largely English speaking country with a stable relationship with the USA. ACN offers a one-year American educational experience, through UND, to international students interested in transferring to an American university and a semester or year long study abroad experience for American students.
