At the 2018 national meeting (minutes attached) it was suggested that we create short podcasts that could share best practices/teaching tips for education abroad. I’m sure that we are open to other means of internationalizing our colleges as well.
What: Podcast- Some of our members indicated that this is becoming their most preferred media for these types of sharing/learning. They can listen while driving, flying, running, anywhere. If you prefer to do an asynchronous webinar, we can handle that too.
Topics: Anything that you are either passionate or expert in sharing. It could be as narrow as “What not to do in Timbuktu” or as broad as “Why Education Abroad?”.
Length: Variable- my general sense is at least 10 minutes, not more than an hour.
How: You record it (using software you have available at your home university), send it to me/share it with me, I get it posted to the NACTA website and send out an announcement that it is there.
When: One of our goals is to get a podcast or alternative posted each quarter. First one in August! If we get more than three volunteers, we’ll post more often.
Why: We are all “experts” even if it is at being a beginner. Share what you know with others and join in international community! As an added bonus, it could be a nice addition to your CV.
Please respond to this e-mail if you are interested in creating a podcast or other sharing media.
