Education Abroad Network (UMTC EAN)
The University of Minnesota Twin Cities Education Abroad Network includes and serves professional advisers, faculty members, administrators, and others involved with education abroad. Meetings will be organized and convened twice a year by the Learning Abroad Center, but the agenda will be open to issues and topics identified by the entire group and relevant to a majority of participants. Preference will be given to sharing of practices, benchmarking, and updates to foster communication and expanded, multidisciplinary collaboration in regard to study abroad.

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
