Practical Expertise Webinar #5

In the midst of a tense political climate, this webinar draws on recent research and real-life experiences to illuminate the real and perceived stressors students face as U.S. students abroad.

Panelists Susan Goldstein, Professor of Psychology at University of Redlands, Tracey Bradley, Executive Director of the Tennessee Consortium for International Studies, and Mark Rush, Professor of Politics and Director of International Education at Washington & Lee University, offers practical, tested approaches for diffusing anxieties, responding to problems that arise, and preparing students to be informed and respectful world citizens.

Topics include:

  • Stereotype threat and perceptions of the U.S. abroad
  • Case studies on students facing uncomfortable encounters
  • Tools to encourage students to engage with difference before, during, and after study abroad
