All of the faculty selected to participate in the
Institute will be expected to draft a detailed course module, syllabus or
research project reflecting Institute content and themes. Modules and syllabi
should include draft bibliographies or assigned readings, as well as
information about film or internet resources that will be used in teaching the
module/course. The final two sessions in the Institute program will be devoted
to sharing these projects and their plans for enhancing Asian studies on
their home campuses.
Throughout the program, the Institute Director and key
presenting faculty will be available to meet with participants individually and
in small groups to assist in the formulating and developing these projects. The
Institute Director will also schedule meetings small groups of participants
early in the second week of the program to discuss their project ideas.
Links to completed projects will be placed on the Institute
website and made available to former and future ASDP program participants, as
well as other educators who are interested in creative methods of introducing
content on Buddhism into college and university courses.
NEH summer institutes are remarkable occasions for
collaborative, communal learning and often have impacts that
