Judith Franzak, Ph.D. ~ Associate Professor of Curriculum and Instruction, was named Fulbright Roving Scholar of American Studies in Norway Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research & The US-Norway Fulbright Foundation August 2012 – May 2013
The Fulbright Roving Scholar Program brings American teachers to Norway to spend an academic year traveling throughout the country giving presentations, seminars and lectures for teachers and students in lower and upper secondary schools. Thanks to generous support from the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research, the Rovers can offer their services to schools free of charge. The Roving Scholars are prepared to address a broad variety of topics and teaching strategies; as they try to share a sense of the form and content of the American teaching experience, they are also here to learn as much as they can from their Norwegian colleagues. This is a unique cross-cultural opportunity for Norwegian teachers to invite an American teacher into the classroom!
