Our embedded program, "Understanding Educational & Vocational Opportunities for Children & Youth in Cambodia," will allow PSU students to visit with children at pre-schools, elementary, middle/high schools, as well as vocational schools. This embedded course would be in conjunction with Dr. Hunt's 'Intro to Developmental Psychology' (PSYCH212.001) course, and/or also with Dr. Bo Cleveland's Adolescence 239 course offering for Spring 2018 in Human Development and Family Studies (HDFS).
Our program has worked with nonprofit, non-governmental, charitable organizations, such as "Caring for Cambodia" to create unique study opportunities for our PSU students. Our students will be able to learn about early education (K-12) from another culture's perspective as well as the opportunities and barriers that affect Cambodian children in Siem Reap. We will also take part in helping to plan some English-based lesson plans at the 'Caring for Cambodia' Schools and visit other Positive Youth Development Programs. Some students may also be able to collect data for their research individual projects. We will also be spending time visiting local cultural sites, for example the temples at Angkor Wat.
During the embedded travel component, housing will consist of overnight accommodations at hotel/hostel.
The process for enrolling in an embedded course varies according to the instructor and/or department. The program leader has indicated that in order to enroll in the course and travel component, students must interview with Drs. Hunt and Cleveland. They will meet with interested students to review the importance of sensitivity of working with children of another culture, and to ensure that they have a basic understanding and interest in the program goals of examining barriers and opportunities to education in Cambodia.
