Spring Arbor University recently welcomed Sheela Samson, associate professor from Immanuel University, SAU’s partner university in Hyderabad, India, to campus where she served as a visiting professor during October. Samson arrived at the university on Oct. 8, and will leave SAU on Oct. 27.
During her three-week-long trip to SAU, Samson has exchanged ideas with faculty and students about teaching styles and international culture. In addition, she attended classes, meetings and seminars to observe how a Christian university integrates faith and learning and how philosophy drives practice.
“It is a wonderful privilege given by Immanuel Business School to be here and to learn about American University life. I’m getting an international exposure to the various media wherein I am meeting all major heads of departments to understand teaching skills and other expertise,” said Samson. “I am proud to be taking part in this faculty exchange program which offers a global learning to imbibe the quality of education in our own world and to be an effective teacher.”
Samson is a guest in the home of Dan and Renée Runyon, associate professor of English and adjunct piano instructor, respectively.
