A List of all the Free International Education Resources I Utilize

I'm often asked the question "where do you find all the information on international education that you post about?" People have been asking me this question since I entered the field of international education back in 2000 when I primarily posted relevant information to the listservs utilized in the field such as SECUSS-L and INTER-L.  Technology has allowed me to discover and learn so much about the field so I thought I would prepare this post with links to anything and everything I subscribe to or use in my research activities.  Due to the large number of resources listed below I did not include a description for each but simply link you to the site.  In addition to many of the links taking you to free subscription information you may also find additional free resources for you to download!


New Media Tools


Twitter - I think Twitter is a must.  There is so much great international education related content being fed to the Twitter stream.  I created a Twitter list called "Int'l Ed. News & Views" that is a lost of international education thought leaders and knowledge producers if you are interested.

Facebook - Many organizations that focus on international education have Facebook Fan pages or groups.  Perhaps a future IHEC Blog post on helpful Facebook pages and groups is also necessary.


Blogs related to international education.  You can find a good list of these types of blogs on my International Education Blogs and News site.


RSS Readers (I use Google Reader) where you can subscribe to news sites, international education blogs and other media outlets. A future IHEC Blog post on who one might want to follow via RSS feeds is in the works


Google Alerts - I receive so many Google Alerts that I have included only a select few that I have (be sure to put quotation marks around your "search term"):  study abroad, international education, Fulbright, citizen diplomacy, education abroad, NAFSA, Forum on Education Abroad, intercultural exchange...the list goes on and on!


Free Electronic Subscriptions



IIE.Interactive Newsletter







Some of these free resources exclusively focus on international education and exchange while some occassionally touch on this topic.  Also, some of these resources I subscribed to while on the Univeristy of Chicago network which may not be available to those who are not on a member/subscribing organizaiton or institution network.

Other Listservs

CBIE MOBILE

CBIE SACE

EAIE-L

IERES-L

Most likely I have not listed every resource out there and if that is the case please leave a comment about the resource and a link I where I can learn more so I can subscribe and include it in this post.  Please note that I am not looking for listservs/newsletters that focus on the activities of a specific organization or program (ie. a third-party provider E-newsletter).  There are many of these out there that I also subscribe to and did not list here.

Update (August 25, 2010): Updated list available on http://davidcomp.wordpress.com/ at http://bit.ly/auYmCD

  9. Thanks for this! It's a great resource. I already use many of the sites you mention, but it's good to learn of a few more. I've been in international education for 10 years now, but I'm new to blogging, Twitter, etc. So it's really useful to find out about these.
