Intercultural Eyes ~ An International Education & Assessment Consultant You Should Know About

I wanted to take a moment to promote the work of my colleague Bettina Hansel who, after almost 30 years working for AFS Intercultural Programs and the past seven years as Director of Intercultural Education and Research, has started her own consulting business. I’ve known Bettina for about 3-4 years now (although I’ve known her name for many more than that as I was/am a fan of her scholarship and work) as our paths have crossed at several research related meetings and sessions at the annual NAFSA conference. If you are looking for guidance and professional support for your research, writing, and intercultural program development efforts I highly recommend that you take a look at what Bettina can offer you and your institution, program or organization. You can visit Bettina’s website here.

Bettina writes and publishes Intercultural Eyes, one of my favorite blogs, which chronicles her “ongoing journey as a geographer and as an intercultural explorer.” IHEC Blog readers might want to bookmark Intercultural Eyes or grab the RSS Feed here.

Additionally, Bettina is the author of
The Exchange Student Survival Kit which you can order at a very reasonable price here.

P.S. This was my 400th IHEC Blog post which is a big milestone for me as IHEC Blog is a very, very part-time project and I can’t think of a better post than promoting the work of someone I’ve come to respect and admire over the years!
