Congratulations Drs. Richard Miller and Katrina Liu!
The U.S. Department of Education has awarded a $78,000 Fulbright-Hays Group Projects Abroad grant to a team from the UNLV School of Music and the UNLV College of Education for the project "Learning about China through Music." Co-directed by PI Dr. Richard Miller (Music) and Dr. Katrina Liu (Teaching & Learning), this collaboration with the Clark County School District and Minzu University of China (Beijing) will provide ten K-12 music teachers and two UNLV music teacher educators the opportunity to learn about China and Chinese music through a five week summer curriculum development program, including four weeks exploration and study in the People's Republic of China. On their return to Nevada, participants will develop curriculum materials to use in their schools; all materials will be made available to educators across the U.S. free of charge through an online portal. This program will contribute to CCSD by helping prepare world-minded citizens through teacher professional development in global education. It will also help UNLV in its efforts to attain top tier status through building international relationships with peer institutions.
