Kansas State delegates travel to Ecuador

By The Mercury

A Kansas State University delegation traveled to Quito, Ecuador, on Sept. 10 to meet with the Ministry of Education and SENESCYT, Ecuador’s governing body of higher education, to continue building a long-term relationship between the university and Ecuador.

Sue Maes, dean of the Division of Continuing Education, and Sharon Brookshire, director of conferences and noncredit programs for the division, along with Socorro Herrera, professor of elementary education and director of the College of Education’s Center for Intercultural and Multilingual Advocacy, and Mona Menking, associate director of international outreach for the center, will work with education officials in Ecuador over the next few days.

The university developed a partnership with Ecuador earlier this year to develop the Go Teacher program, which completed its inaugural session in August. Through this program, nearly 90 Ecuadorean teachers learned how to teach English as a second language to students in their own country, while also becoming more proficient in English in the process.
