I've been in the field of international—now intercultural—education for 20+ years. I’ve worked in practically every area of the field—language learning, international student services, study abroad—in both administrative and teaching roles, and for universities as well as an international program provider.
I’m passionate about the potential of international education, but I also know we’re far from achieving that potential much, if not most, of the time. So I’ve been on a quest to learn how to make intercultural learning opportunities—at home and abroad—as transformative and impactful as possible, not just for our students, but for everyone involved. I’d like to share with you a little of what I’ve learned along the way, and challenge us all to begin to reimagine a better approach to international education and intercultural learning.
