Description

Since its establishment in 2007, KAIST International Summer School (KISS) has worked faithfully to serve as a hub for cultural and academic exchange between students from all over the world. Throughout the past seven years, KISS has evolved to be become an integral part of the summer experience at KAIST and unique opportunity for students, from Korea and abroad, to interlace a tapestry of academic exchange through creative teaching and learning.

This year we have focused on offering classes that emphasize interaction, a fundamental skill needed by today’s interactive world and knowledge-based economy by offering Global Entrepreneurship and implementing theEducation 3.0 Curriculum. The Global Entrepreneurship course will allow students to learn about the fundamentals, infrastructure, and theoretical process behind transforming an idea into a reality. Education 3.0 is a new and revolutionary teaching and learning system developed at KAIST, and its focus is to enhance interaction and discussion in a traditional classroom setting.

We invite you to come experience innovative teaching and the blending of cultures at KAIST this summer at the 2014 KAIST International Summer School Program. This experience will most-definitely broaden your cultural understanding, deepen your intellectual capacity, and expand your network of friendships. We believe that 2014 KISS will provide a wonderful environment and program that will serve as a catalyst in formulating new friendships and pleasant memories that can be shared around the world.
