As a Fulbright specialist, Dr. Carly Womack-Wynne has been selected to evaluate and revise the national standards of education for Uzbekistan by the Fulbright Specialist program.

Dr. Carly Womack-Wynne, professor of teacher education at the University of North Georgia (UNG), has been selected to evaluate and revise the national standards of education for Uzbekistan by the Fulbright Specialist program.

"I will look at the country's P-12 curriculum and conducting quality assurance for higher education," she said. "Uzbekistan is considering integrating science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) into their curriculum."

Womack-Wynne can help with those curriculum alterations based on her expertise and status as a Fulbright specialist. Last year, she joined the ranks of Fulbright specialists. She also has worked as a consultant to the Ministry of Education of Belize for more than a decade and is leading a project to establish the nation's first quality assurance in higher education standards

The Fulbright Specialist program "pairs highly qualified U.S. academics and professionals with host institutions abroad to share their expertise … and learn about other cultures while building capacity at their overseas host institutions," according to its website. It is designed to allow senior administrators to engage in high-impact projects requiring a limited on-site time commitment.

Womack-Wynne said she is honored to work with Uzbekistan's Ministry of Public Education and takes her role seriously.

"It's a pretty prestigious award," she said. "I'm a little intimidated and in awe."
