Current Research Projects in Education Abroad Roundtable at Forum on Education Abroad Conference

Next week Wednesday to Friday (Feb. 18th to 20th) I’ll be attending the annual conference of the Forum on Education Abroad in Portland, Oregon. On Thursday, February 19th I’ll be assisting with the “Research Roundtable: Current Research Projects in Education Abroad” session starting at 3:45pm. I’m looking forward to learning what research is going on in the field as well as providing a venue for researchers in the field to network.

During the first round of conference sessions at 8:45am on Thursday, February 19th I plan to attend the “Exchange Participants as Citizen Diplomats: Best Practices” presentation by Jed Willard (
The Public Diplomacy Collaborative at the Ash Institute for Democratic Governance and Innovation at the Harvard Kennedy School ~ more to come on this effort in a future post) and Danielle Scugoza (Penn Abroad Office at the University of Pennsylvania).

Looking forward to seeing many colleagues again in Portland.
