I receive frequent requests from international academics to come to UC Irvine as a visiting scholar. In a typical situation, this is a person with a master's degree degree, a post as a junior or senior faculty member at an Asian university (most frequently, China), a strong interest in educational technology, and who has received government funding for a 1-year visit to a US university to further their expertise in technology in education. Often they will go back to their countries to play important roles in developing university programs in educational technology, multimedia, distance learning, or computer-assisted language learning.
Unfortunately, my department cannot accommodate the volume of requests that I receive in this area. I hate to say no to people without giving them recommendations of other people they might contact. Do any Papyrus News readers care to suggest individuals or departments that might be worth contacting? Ideally these would be people, departments, or programs that have expertise in either educational technology or applied linguistics and that are receptive to accepting visiting scholars as described above. Self-nominations especially welcome.
Thanks for your consideration--
