Challenging Students to Become Reasonable Adventurers in Global Contexts

Date: Monday, April 24, 2017

Time: 12:30 pm pacific / 1:30 pm mountain / 2:30 pm central / 3:30 pm eastern

Presented by:

Dr. Michael Stebleton, Associate Professor, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities
Lynn C. Anderson, Academic Director, CEPA Foundation, former Dean of International Education, UC San Diego

Description

What does it mean for students to have a world-relatedness?  Do our students with whom we interact on a daily basis have a flare for change?  More importantly, how do we as study abroad educators foster these traits in our undergraduate students?  Using the student development concept of the reasonable adventurer, Dr. Stebleton will discuss strategies for challenging students to become reasonable adventurers in their own approach to learning. He will share some of his own ideas that he applies to his own students – in the classroom and abroad – and encourage participants to share their own promising practices.

Objectives

  • To define and discuss the traits of the reasonable adventurer and how it applies to study abroad opportunities.
  • To gain an understanding of how and why the reasonable adventurer is especially relevant to today’s college students.
  • To share and discuss experiences and ideas to foster critical thinking, global learning, interpersonal communication, and other qualities through high-impact practice in study abroad.

The presentation will last approximately 40 minutes and a 20 min. interactive Q&A discussion with the presenters will follow.

Registration

Registration is available free of charge to faculty, staff, advisors, and administrators at colleges and universities.

Upcoming Webinar: Ten Quick Tips for Working with Education Abroad Provider Organizations

CEPA FoundationWe are pleased to announce and to invite you to participate in the next CEPA Foundation webinar:

Ten Quick Tips for Working with Education Abroad Provider Organizations


Date:
Monday, February 29, 2016

Time:
3:00 pm to 4:00 pm (Eastern Time Zone)

Presented by:

Anthony C. Ogden, Ph.D.

Executive Director, Education Abroad and Exchanges

University of Kentucky International Center

Lynn C. Anderson, Academic Director, CEPA Foundation

Description:
Due to the proliferation of provider organizations working in the broadly-defined ‘industry’ of U.S. education abroad, it has become incredibly challenging for even the most experienced education abroad professional to differentiate organizations and to determine with whom to partner. Long-standing affiliations and professional loyalties are being tested by the arrival of a new cadre of innovative and entrepreneurial organizations and without doubt competition for students and attention is intensifying.

As a result, education abroad offices are being bombarded with email solicitations, campus visit requests, ever-expanding exhibition halls, and so on.

In this webinar, Dr. Anthony Ogden will describe the “Ten Quick Tips” that he has developed for working with education abroad provider organizations. Lynn C. Anderson, Academic Director of the CEPA Foundation and former Dean of International Education at UC San Diego will comment and respond.

The presentation will last approximately 40 minutes and a 20 min. interactive Q&A discussion session will follow.

Registration is free of charge to faculty, study abroad staff, and administrators at colleges and universities.
