Lifelong Learning Center
Faculty Development

It is aimed at internationalizing faculty members’ prior knowledge and experience by enabling them to engage in an intensive intellectual and cross-cultural seminar in Turkey. Seminar series engage participants in learning about the achievements and challenges of a geographical region that has long contributed to the intellectual and cultural endowment of the world. The format and content of the seminar is designed to fit the requirements of visiting institutes. Seminars focus on selected themes of great importance to Turkey and the region, while also providing some insights into other issues in history, sciences, political science, the arts, humanities, and the social sciences.
