The Fulbright Distinguished Awards in Teaching Program for International Teachers  (DAI) is an opportunity for public high school teachers to experience a semester-long professional development program in American education at the elementary and secondary level. Moroccan DAI grantees take courses, team-teach, lead classes for U.S. teachers and students in local schools, and engage in other teaching-related activities. They are part of a cohort of some 20 teachers from a variety of countries who live, study, and work together at an American university.  The DAI provides a full American campus and community experience in which participants see American life at many levels.  Academic coursework focuses on instructional technology and leadership. DAI grantees are guided by American professors of education as they work together on individual or group projects outlined in the application.
The DAI program also provides an opportunity for American teachers to come to Morocco for three to six months. Like the DAI Moroccan grantees, the American teachers may audit two university classes, observe classes in local schools, and share their expertise with Moroccan teachers and students. U.S. teachers also complete a project.
