Roving Scholars 2014-15

Roving Scholars 2014-15

The Fulbright Roving Scholar Program brings American teachers to Norway to spend an academic year travelling throughout the country giving presentations, seminars and lectures for teachers and students in lower and upper secondary schools. Thanks to generous support from the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research, the Rovers can offer their services to schools free of charge. The Roving Scholars are prepared to address a broad variety of topics and teaching strategies; as they try to share a sense of the form and content of the American teaching experience, they are also here to learn as much as they can from their Norwegian colleagues. This is a unique cross-cultural opportunity for Norwegian teachers to invite an American teacher into the classroom!

Roving Scholars are eager to visit many schools and would be happy to get an invitation from you. Please contact them if you are at all interested in having them come. Below are profiles and course offerings of the 2014-15 US Roving Scholars to Norway.
