Discussion Topics for Research Roundtable at Forum on Education Abroad Conference

It turns out that I will be having a more active role in the "Research Roundtable: Current Projects in Education Abroad" session at the Forum on Education Abroad conference today at 3:45pm. I'll actually be leading the session and have prepared the following questions for discussion:

1. Who's working on and planning research projects? - please share

2. What methodology/instruments are you using?

3. What other research should the field do to influence policy and/or practice?

4. What are the best mediums to disseminate new knowledge in the field?

5. In 2009 is it best to focus publication efforts on the field of education abroad (ie. in Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, Journal of Studies in International Education, etc) or should eforts focus on reaching outsiders (ie. institutional leaders, politicians, general public, etc.) to inform on the value of an edcation abroad and what the field is doing?
