Tuesday, November 12, 3:00 - 4:00 in D116

Facilitators: Travis Sola and Ruijie Zhao

Join us Tuesday, November 12 from 3:00-4:00 in D116 to hear from Travis Sola (SSHS) and Ruijie Zhao (Humanities) about their experiences creating a study abroad program and what they brought back into the classroom based on their experiences. This won’t be your grandmother’s slide show! Our practical session will provide you with ideas for program development and insights into the important benefits you and your students gain from studying abroad. It is not only a visual feast where you see beautiful, exotic pictures but also a wonderful opportunity to hear unique stories of coordinating trips and travelling abroad with students who have a genuine interest in knowing other cultures.
