IHEC Blog Interview with Gayle Woodruff about the NAFSA Teaching, Learning & Scholarship knowledge community

During the most recent NAFSA annual conference I had the chance to interview my good friend Gayle Woodruff from the University of Minnesota about NAFSA's Teaching, Learning and Scholarship (TLS) knowledge community.  Gayle and I have presented and co-authored a chapter together (with two other colleagues) on issues pertaining to diversifying the study abroad student profile and we served on the TLS team together.  In this video Gayle, current Chair of TLS, introduces herself and gives a brief overview of what TLS is all about.

The TLS knowledge community consists of the following three networks:

Research and Scholarship network
Intercultural Communication & Training network
Internationalizing Teaching, Learning, and Curriculum

Lot's of really great things are happening in the TLS knowledge community and I encourage all IHEC Blog readers to visit their webpage here, attend TLS related sessions, workshops and seminars at future NAFSA conferences and to get involved with this group!
