Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement Program

The Fulbright Teaching Excellence and Achievement (FTEA) Program is a six-week nondegree, non-credit academic program at a U.S. University which provides selected teachers with a unique opportunity to develop greater expertise in their subject areas, enhance their teaching skills, and increase their knowledge about the United States.

The international participants travel to the United States for one of two six-week professional development programs in either spring or fall of an academic year. The Fulbright TEA program provides academic seminars on teaching methodologies and strategies, curriculum development, lesson planning, and instructional technology training.

Intensive English language instruction is offered to teachers who need additional practice. The program also includes a practicum of at least 40 hours with a U.S. partner teacher in a U.S. secondary school near the host university to actively engage participants in the U.S.
classroom environment.
