NTR Teaching Grant Internship Host Guidelines
- Hosts should have significant past experience teaching negotiation, conflict, and/or dispute resolution, and be teaching during the period of the internship.
- Hosts’ institutions are expected to provide support for the intern in obtaining any necessary visas, and health insurance. If home country health care will not extend coverage, NTR funds may be used for health insurance. Hosts are expected to welcome the resident and invite the resident to meet regularly with the host and the host’s teaching assistants during the period of planning for, delivering, and grading the class.
- NTR Teaching Interns should not be treated as a free teaching assistant with full responsibility for getting materials to students or grading. However, learning how to write an exam, how to grade, and how to give student feedback are important elements of learning how to teach negotiation, conflict, and dispute resolution.
