Program Description:

Propose a Catalog Course

 

CCSA provides education abroad opportunities in English-speaking regions of the world for students and faculty at our 27 member institutions. Students from non-member institutions may also apply for CCSA programs and earn credit through CCSA’s host institution, Western Kentucky University.

CCSA seeks innovative faculty to teach the most internationally and academically appropriate courses expected by students, their parents and our member institutions.



Catalog Program

CCSA accepts course proposals twice a year in which the learning goals integrate the location into the syllabus. Faculty infuse the learning goals with the culture, history, or significance of the location from the point of view of each particular discipline.


The Winter catalog normally includes multiple courses taught on programs in these locations:
  • London
  • London & Dublin
  • New Zealand (even years)
  • Australia (odd years) - this program has a specific itinerary, so please contact Jerry Barnaby before proposing a course.
Normally, the departure date is December 26 with the return on January 8 (or 9).  


The Summer catalog normally includes multiple courses taught on programs in these English-speaking locations:
  • Belize
  • Ireland (2-week) – early in Summer
  • Ireland (2-week) – later in summer
  • London (3 or 4-week)
  • London (2-week)
  • Scotland (2-week)
Other locations where CCSA has offered Summer 2-week catalog programs:
  • Ghana
  • South Africa
Program dates vary for each program, but the London programs take place in July.
 

A good CCSA proposal will at a minimum:
 

  • Have an exciting course title and description that appeals to students and relates the location to the academic experience,
  • Have well defined learning outcomes* that are specifically tied to the destination country and are appropriate for a study abroad environment, and
  • Embodies the ideology of experiential learning by utilizing field trips, site visits, lectures by local experts and self-directed student exploration.


*  Learning outcomes should answer this question... "At the end of this study abroad course, students will be able to... "  Here is a resource.


Resources


Faculty Advisory Group - This is the group of experienced CCSA leaders serving as advisors to faculty preparing proposals.

Course Archive - CCSA maintains a growing archive of courses taught in past years. Explore the archive and determine if you’d prefer to teach one of these courses or develop a new course of your own.

Past Itineraries are available upon request to give a picture of the program structure. For the catalog programs, course must fit into the standard model.

Clusters - CCSA accepts course proposals in which the learning goals integrate the location into the syllabus. Faculty should infuse the learning goals with the culture, history, or significance of the location from the point of view of each particular discipline. We offer a set clusters around a theme in which faculty may plug in a course. These groupings enable CCSA to promote a set of courses.  Of course, we don't limit the CCSA catalog to just these clusters, so you are not restricted in the type of course you wish to propose.
