Session 7: Mind the Gap: Bridging Student Development with Education Abroad
Given our unique position at the crossroads of student, international and academic affairs, we as study abroad practitioners must adjust the way we work within our university communities in a post-COVID world. As education abroad professionals with backgrounds in student affairs, we will examine how we can utilize a student development framework to make our programming and advising practices more inclusive and supportive.
The intended outcome of this session is to provide a foundational understanding of student development in an international education context.
