State of the Field Survey 2008 by The Forum on Education Abroad

Last week the Forum on Education Abroad released their State of the Field Survey 2008 on their website. I’m not going to analyze the report in this post other than to say that I think it’s very well prepared and an important contribution to the field of education abroad. The last in State of the Field Survey was released by the Forum in 2006. While there is a tremendous amount of volunteer hours put in by members of the Committee on Data Collection as well as many hours of hard work by staff at the Forum, I think that the Survey should continue to be conducted every other year so that we can better understand how the field has changed over time. For those of you who are interested in the data behind the report (like me) you’ll be happy to know that the Forum has made their Data Tables available on the Toolbox section of their website.
