The PSU and Pakistan Dialogue Continues…
In our summer e-newsletter, we brought to you information about PSU’s long-standing Pakistani Educational Leadership Institute. In July, 20 Pakistani secondary-level educators gathered on campus for a month-long cross-cultural exchange program. We’d like to share with you some of their experiences, thoughts, and reflections about their time at PSU.
The Pakistani Project now has 100 Pakistani alumni, who represent the Punjab, the Sindh, the Federal District of Islamabad, Baluchistan, Azad Jammu Kashmir, the North West Frontier Province, and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas.
With continued funding secured from the U.S. Department of State, planning is underway for the 2009 summer institute. The 2009 Pakistani Educational Leadership Institute will focus on professional development in science education, with additional training in conflict resolution and social tolerance. While the focus of the Institute changes annually, the shared learning opportunities that link educators in Pakistan and New Hampshire are constant.
