Most of the course development team will have begun by the time September roles around. Then between October 6 and 16, the first UBC delegation will visit UCA’s brand new campus in Khorog, Tajikistan to meet faculty, administrators, students, and local, industry & government sponsors, partners and stake holders.
This short visit will focus on building relationships between the wide range of participants, especially students and faculty. Success at developing the Earth and Environmental curriculum most certainly depends upon incorporating their needs, priorities and interests!
More details will be provided, probably in September, once the team is well-engaged in overarching iterative development of program-scale curriculum.
