This program provides education students an opportunity to share science and mathematics teaching experiences within a very unique and different culture. Students will spend two days in an orientation session at SUNY Cortland before traveling to Thailand. During the first week in Thailand the student participants will be working with their university partners to become familiar with the Thai education system and visit schools within the Bangkok area. They will study the school’s routine and curriculum to prepare lessons for teaching during the next two and a half weeks (12 days). The last of week four will be spent in preparing an individual presentation to be given at the Science Education Center at Srinakharinwirot University.
The program is led by faculty leader Dr. Orvil White
Lodging in Bangkok will be at Tai-Pan Hotel located in the central shopping and entertainment district.
During the 14-day duration of their practical teaching, students will be hosted in the homes of their Thai host teachers or graduate students.
