Building international competencies in the field

Building on an existing field schools program, the project develops a series of short-term programs taught internationally by Concordia University professors. These programs, of a maximum of two weeks in duration, are taught in collaboration with partner institutions in non-traditional outbound student mobility countries, in particular, throughout Latin America, Africa and Asia. In order to ensure the full participation of students from target groups, the project focuses not only on recruitment within specific demographics — with the assistance of its Canadian partner institutions — but also cultivate a disciplinary focus in fields susceptible to attract them and foster people-to-people ties.
