Global business is a constantly changing and evolving area of study. The national network of CIBERs, including IU CIBER housed within the Institute for International Business, keep faculty members ahead of the curve by promoting and sponsoring a variety of faculty development programs every year.
International Study Programs
CIBERs across the U.S. offer faculty development programs with short-term international trips to Latin America (Mercosur focus), Southeast Asia, China, Russia, Africa, India, the Middle East, and the European Union.
Seminars, Workshops, and Other Programs
IU CIBER promotes and supports many domestic faculty development programs with both regional and national significance:
- Internationalization Collaborative Across Bloomington: A partnership of IU and Ivy Tech Community College in Bloomington, this program allows faculty at both institutions to collaborate on internationalization of their teaching and assessment of student learning. IU Center for Global Change administers the program.
- Institute for Curriculum and Campus Internationalization: The institute focuses on how to internationalize curricula and college campuses, with sessions highlighting contemporary global and area studies, learning objectives, innovative pedagogical and technological techniques, institutional change and strategic plans, course design, and assessment.
- Globalization Seminars (University of Memphis): These seminars help business faculty bring international context into the classroom and expand teaching and research skills.
- International Business Institute for Community College Faculty (Michigan State University): The institute provides participants with the knowledge and resources to internationalize general business courses or develop specialized international business courses at the two-year college level.
- Faculty Development Seminar Series (University of South Carolina): Participants spend a week with top faculty in one of six fields, developing professional knowledge and pedagogical skills to enhance teaching of the particular subject.
International Business Conference for Doctoral Students
The Internationalizing Doctoral Education in Business (IDEB) conference, offered by a consortium of CIBERs, supports doctoral candidates with international dissertation topics by developing a peer network and influencing a new generation of doctoral students to approach their studies with an international perspective. IU CIBER cosponsors the conference each year.
