Teacher Seminars

Led by distinguished scholars, our seminars are designed to give participants access to current scholarship and university resources in a variety of fields, to introduce them to innovative approaches to traditional ideas and subjects, to explore new pedagogical and curricular possibilities, and to provide a variety of cultural, social, and imaginative experiences, all in four of the cultural capitals of the world: Cambridge, Paris, and Oxford.

The seminars involve plenary sessions given by outstanding academics and intellectuals, regular discussions on more focused educational themes, a comprehensive schedule of cultural events and outings, historical tours, museum and gallery visits, and free time for individual research and relaxation.

At the heart of the Teacher Seminars are elective Study Groups, each designed to provide an academic focus for the participan's experience, and to take advantage of the expertise of the Study Group leader.

The Cambridge Teacher Seminar — July 6 - 13, 2014 is held in Westcott House, one of Cambridge university's most intimate and picturesque institutions. Here, teachers find an inspiring setting for intellectual reflection and cultural enrichment. The diverse program of plenary speakers and cultural events makes accessible much of the scholarly wealth and intellectual history of the university.

The Paris Teacher Seminar — July 13 - 20, 2014 takes place in the Foyer Franco-Libanais, a student residence in the Latin Quarter, near the Sorbonne, where participants are ideally situated to immerse themselves in the atmosphere and culture of Paris. The program is designed for teachers of French and other subjects, whether they are fluent in French or not, who wish to bring a fresh perspective on history, literature or art to their classroom.

The Oxford Teacher Seminar — July 20 - 27, 2014 is held in Mansfield College, Oxford university. Participants have the unique opportunity to share in the academic and cultural traditions of this famous university. Teachers meet Rhodes Scholars, visit colleges, libraries and historic sites, and gain an insider's feeling for the deeper resources behind the beauty and tradition of "the city of dreaming spires."
