Two new panelists for teaching abroad panel at NCMC

Unfortunately Dan Reimold is stuck in Atlanta and won't be able to join us for the Thursday morning panel on International Teaching/Research Opportunities for Journalism Educators at the Associated Collegiate Press/College Media Advisers National College Media Convention in Louisville.

But two globe-trotting CMA members have stepped in to fill the void.

Come hear how Brian Steffen of Simpson College has led a number of study-abroad programs, including an intercultural communication tour of England, France, Austria, Germany and Switzerland for 37 students.

You'll also hear from David Arant of University of Memphis, who has taught two three-block seminar courses for the Johannes Gutenberg University,  U of Memphis' sister school in Mainz, Germany. He'll offer some suggestions on how faculty can explore new relationships with overseas schools where partnerships already exist.

We'll miss Dan but this should still be a terrific Professional Development panel for journalism educators interested in teaching abroad.
