International Faculty Development Seminar

WORLD is pleased to announce our second International Faculty Development Seminar (IFDS).  This year’s IFDS will take place in Oaxaca, Mexico, from May 11-17, 2020.  The purpose of the IFDS is for Stetson faculty to learn how to build and lead their own study abroad programs.

The centerpiece of the faculty development program is an immersive week-long experience where Stetson faculty participate in study abroad with the overarching goals of equipping faculty with best practice strategies in:

  • how to use location to deepen content,
  • elevate student engagement and intercultural learning,
  • develop safe, compliant and academically-rich study abroad programs, and
  • promote Stetson’s value of Global Citizenship.

For more information and to apply, please visit the application webpage.  Applications (including a nomination from your department chair) are due by Jan. 21.

WORLD gratefully acknowledges the support of the Rinker family in making this IFDS possible.

Please contact Paula Hentz ( if you have any questions.
