By Purnell T. Cropper | July 5, 2012

Dr. Warren Haffar, Dean of International Affairs and Associate Professor and Director of International Peace and Conflict Resolution,  presented a workshop on “A Pedagogical Model for Faculty Engagement through Short-term International Programming: Opportunities and Challenges” at the NAC&U conference in Salt Lake on June 20.

Haffar presented successful strategies for engaging faculty and students through short-term international programming. Focusing on two examples—Arcadia University’s Preview program (for first-year students) and advanced, upper-level courses that engage students in research-based international programming led by faculty and staff—he addressed the benefits, challenges and transferability of the Arcadia approach to other institutions.
