Lehigh Valley announces first Teaching International speaker for fall semester
Kenneth Cunningham, Ph.D., associate professor of sociology at Penn State Harrisburg, will be the featured speaker for the first Teaching International program lecture of the fall semester.

This event is free and open to the public.
Teaching International at Penn State University has developed into a model of global education anchored in curriculum innovation, student-centered research and teaching, and engaged global citizenship. Course lectures, class projects, field trips, public debates, service learning activities, theatrical productions, films, and guest lectures are some of the methods used to help students learn about the world. Teaching International at Penn State Lehigh Valley is a campus-wide academic initiative modeled after the program at Penn State Greater Allegheny which aims to enhance our own campus dynamics and community.
