Spring 2021 Education Abroad Network (EAN) Virtual Meeting

Topic: What does virtual learning mean for the future of education abroad?
Friday, May 7, 10-11:30 a.m.

Join us for the spring 2021 Education Abroad Network meeting. The focus of the meeting will be on the future of virtual learning in the education abroad context. As we plan for in-person instruction here and abroad, what happens to virtual learning? Is virtual learning an evolution in the field? What are the implications of what we have learned about virtual learning this past year, here and abroad? Please join us for this important conversation.

The last 15 minutes of the meeting updates will be provided to help guide you in your work with students as you prepare for summer orientations and the upcoming academic year
