This page contains links to a range of posts on this blog I wrote since beginning to lead study abroad programs. The posts are aimed at faculty and inidviduals interested in the faculty experience. You will notice I do not talk about or name specific students. My comments are limited to my experience including my working partnerships with my teaching assistant, UIC Study Abroad office colleagues and overseas partners.

My posts try to convey the objectives and processes I used before and during the program. The purpose of this page is to share ideas and ways for reader’s to use my experiences and insights for their own benefit for their future study abroad programs.

Leave a comment or email me at if you would like to follow up with me about something you would like to have a conversation about.
