This program provides a wonderful opportunity for our campus and local community members to learn more about Pakistan and the special relationships that have been formed between Boone and Pakistani educators and students through this intercultural exchange project based on a grant project received by Appalachian State (Arshad Bashir and Dr. Jesse Lutabingwa).

MORE: This February, teachers and principals at three schools in Watauga County along with three representatives at Appalachian State University travelled to Pakistan in an on-going exchange program with HITEC (Heavy Industries Technical Education City) in Taxila, Pakistan. Hardin Park, Green Valley, and Watauga High School hosted students, teachers, and principals from HITEC in December of 2012. The U.S. delegation of teachers, administrators, and faculty will share their experiences and insights on March 21st, from 4:00-5:15pm. Join us for this culturally stimulating program that is building relationships between teachers and students here in Watauga County and in Taxila, Pakistan.

The initial visits were to introduce partner schools and allow time for cultural exchange experiences. The visit to Pakistan allowed the participants to continue to engage in cultural experiences and to develop plans that involve blending U.S. and Pakistani educational standards into common lessons and activities.
