A new collaboration between Laspau and the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos, Peru
Laspau has begun a new program with the National University of San Marcos (Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos, UNMSM in Spanish), a top-ranking institution in Peru, which is among the oldest in the Americas. The aim of the program is to build core competencies as creators, leaders, problem-solvers, effective communicators and collaborators with a global awareness. Additionally, the program exposed the participants to numerous teaching assistant models with the intention of these participants to become the first undergraduate teaching assistants at San Marcos.
Over the next few months, more than 100 students, professors and institutional leaders will participate in the program in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The program includes seminars, workshops, and interactive sessions with faculty, educators, lecturers from local universities such as Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and Boston University, among others. Participants will be exposed to best practices in teaching and learning and work on interdisciplinary teams to create solutions for local challenges in Peru.
