Comparative and International Education Society (CIES) annual conference being held in Chicago. My presentation is part of a larger panel discussion entitled “Comparative Perspectives on Measuring the Impact of Study Abroad: Life, Society, and Public Diplomacy Re-imagined”. I will be joined on this panel by session chair and panelists Jae-Eun Jon who will be presenting on the topic “Study Abroad Experience and Its Influence on Subsequent Life: Three Large-Scale Studies” and Louis Berends who will be presenting on the topic “The Impact of Study Abroad on STEM Field Students: Assessing Work Related Experiences and other ‘Non-Credit’ Programs Abroad”. We will also be joined by Gerald Fry who will serve as our discussant. You can learn more about our session here. If will be attending the CIES conference and our session fits into your schedule please come or swing by after the session to say hello.
This will be my first CIES conference and my participation will be limited to presenting at this session as I have to get back to Hyde Park to my full-time job and get the kids from school.
