International Leaders in Education
The International Leaders in Education Program (ILEP) provides high school teachers with unique opportunities to develop expertise in their subject areas, enhance their teaching skills and increase their knowledge about the United States. ILEP consists of a semester-long non-degree, non-credit academic program at a U.S. University including seminars on new teaching methodologies, curriculum development, lesson planning, and teaching strategies. Participants audit two courses in the host university’s School or Department of Education and participate in a practicum in a U.S. secondary school near the host university. Participants also receive a technology allowance and instructional technology training. Cultural enrichment, mentoring, and support will be provided throughout the program. ILEP commences in January and concludes in May.
Upon returning home, ILEP alumni are eligible to apply for small grants for essential teaching materials, follow-on training for other teachers, collaborative projects between schools in their home country and the United States, and other activities that build on their U.S. experience.
