2018 In-Country Campus Visit Dates

The 2017 campus visits to the University of KwaZulu-Natal, Makerere University, and the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology were an amazing opportunity for faculty from Iowa State to make contact and begin building relationships with peers in Africa. We are looking forward to meeting with you again this year and observing the many new classroom skills acquired at this summer's PBEA-PLC seminar on the Iowa State Campus. 

Our team members are excited to discuss some of the strategies that you have built into your classrooms and to hear your feedback. This visit will be an opportunity to discuss some of the methods and skills that you would like to see on the website and those that will be explored at the 2018 seminar. 

Just a reminder that your universities will not incur expenses with this visit. The visits are funded through the PLC grant, but we would welcome advice on logistics and scheduling dates for campus visits. 

Please do not hesitate to make contact soon:
