International Leaders in Education Program (ILEP)


The International Leaders in Education Program (ILEP) provides international 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 customized academic program at a U.S. university including seminars on new teaching methodologies, curriculum development, lesson planning, and instructional technology. Participants in the program audit two courses in the host university’s School or Department of Education. Participants participate in a practicum in a U.S. secondary school near the host university to work closely with U.S. teachers and teach and present to U.S. students. All participants in the program receive a technology allowance and instructional technology training. Cultural enrichment, mentoring, and support are provided throughout the program.
