Elon faculty and staff offer workshop at NCAIE

Associate Professor of Spanish Donna Van Bodegraven, together with Bill Burress, Anna Lainfiesta and Elizabeth Snell of the Isabella Cannon Global Education Center, co-presented a pre-conference workshop at the annual conference of the North Carolina Association of International Educators.

The conference was held at North Carolina A&T University on March 7-8. 

During the four-hour workshop, entitled “Developing Short-Term Faculty-Led Study Abroad Programs,” and using hands-on activities, engaged question-and-answer sessions as well as formal presentation, the team led participants through all the steps in creating a short-term study abroad program from conceiving the course and writing the proposal, through budget creation, orientation, best practices in country, communication between faculty and staff, and post-experience reflection and assessment.
