EDiTE Supervisors Awarded for Excellence in Education Abroad Curriculum Design

In celebration of International Education Week, The Forum on Education Abroad announced the 2016 recipients of the Award for Excellence in Education Abroad Curriculum Design: Hana Cervinkova (supervisor and program director in EDiTE) and Juliet Golden (co-supervisor in EDiTE), for their course in cooperation with Syracuse University “Negotiating Identities Across Europe’s Borders,” offered as part of the Culture and Politics of Reconciliation in Central Europe program, based in Wroclaw, Poland. The Forum’s Award for Excellence in Curriculum Design honors faculty who develop and implement innovative and effective education abroad curricula. It is the education abroad field’s only award presented to an individual or group of individuals for excellence in the design of an education abroad course. Through visits to cities and villages in Poland, the Czech Republic, Germany, and Lithuania over the course of a semester, “Negotiating Identities Across Europe’s Borders” analyzes conflict and reconciliation in European history, to better understand the reasons that the European Union was awarded the 2012 Nobel Peace Prize for its work in “the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights.” Forum President and CEO Brian Whalen stated, “Professors Cervinkova and Golden’s important and timely course is a wonderful example of faculty innovation and creativity in education abroad.”
