Luksic Scholars Foundation opens applications for programs for university professors

Finding new teaching methodologies that interest and attract students is one of the greatest challenges faced by teachers around the world. In response, the Luksic Scholars Foundation has opened calls for two academic opportunities at Sciences Po and Babson College, aimed at university professors who are seeking to incorporate innovative methodologies in their classrooms or who work in the area of entrepreneurship, in order to enhance their professional development. 


To address the challenges in education from a global perspective, the Institute for Capabilities and Innovation Sciences Po will hold an international Teaching and Learning Workshop whose call considers the participation of five Chilean academics supported by the Luksic Scholars Foundation. This opportunity is part of the ‘Faculty Seminar at Sciences Po.’
