“The sessions I attended at the WISE conference were outstanding. They were offered by seasoned professionals who understood the pedagogy and the practicality of taking students abroad. I left each session with practical ways to think about engaging students academically and through hands-on experiences that will enhance student learning. I will be incorporating many of the things I learned at the WISE conference in the global seminar I offer in spring 2014.”
