The campaign for Hartwick students

Multicultural and Urban Educational Field Experience in Ghana

Location: Ghana, West Africa

Course: EDUC 390

This course offers education students a unique opportunity to complete their 390 mini-practicum in warm and friendly Ghana, West Africa. Students are placed in English-speaking classrooms in one of several schools in the town of Asebu. There they embark on a cultural exchange in both teaching and learning. Students are paired with Ghanaian teachers who will mentor them in Ghanaian education while being given the chance to share what they have learned at Hartwick. In addition, students participate in an exciting variety of cultural workshops in drumming, dance and batik, ecotourism experiences from the rainforest to the sea, and finally, relaxing beach weekends.
