Update: Faculty Development Seminars Postponed

The Faculty Development Seminars must be postponed again until next winter December 2022-January 2023. We at CAORC have been closely monitoring the guidance of health and government officials in the US and overseas as we consider appropriate actions for our programs. We had hoped that conditions would allow us to conduct the seminars in Spring 2022. However, based on the uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation in various countries, it has been determined that these programs must be postponed in order to protect the health and safety of our participants, colleagues, and guest speakers overseas.

India

Call for applications is expected to be announced by mid May 2022, with an August 2022 deadline.

Seminar dates tentatively beginning late December 2022 and ending mid-January 2023.

Senegal

Call for applications is expected to be announced by mid May 2022, with an August 2022 deadline.

Seminar dates tentatively scheduled for January 2023.

Mexico

Call for applications is expected to be announced by the end of September 2022, with January 2023 deadline.

Seminar dates tentatively beginning late-May 2023 and ending mid-June 2023.

Myanmar/Cambodia

Due to the pandemic and the political situation in Myanmar, the seminar that was scheduled to be conducted in Myanmar in June 2020 was postponed. If the political situation in Myanmar has not improved significantly by June 2023, we are considering shifting the seminar to Cambodia for a hybrid Khmer/Burmese program. The faculty participants have already been selected, however if there are spaces available by 2023 due to some of the selected faculty withdrawing, we will have a competition to fill them.

We plan to offer additional Faculty Development Seminars in the future. In addition to India, Senegal, Mexico, and Myanmar/Cambodia we are working on plans to conduct seminars in other countries in 2024, as well. We will post an update as soon as we have more information.
