DIS Successfully Hosts International Educators Workshop

DIS hosted its annual International Educators Workshop, where faculty and study abroad professionals from universities across the United States attended a week of classes, seminars, and field studies to experience a typical week as a DIS student.

The week gave participants the opportunity to see first-hand what it is like to be a DIS student, as they sat in on classes, attended field studies, and lived in homestays. Further, the group engaged in dialogue on how the study abroad experience can best educate students to become global citizens, and participants returned to the U.S. with a greater understanding of student housing options, lifestyles, and academics inside and outside the classroom.

Institutional Relations Assistant Director Jamie Cathell was very pleased with the week’s events, saying, “It was such a pleasure to spend IEW with our partners. We truly enjoyed all the inspiring conversations about international education and curriculum development, their willingness to share thoughts and ideas with us, and the opportunity to show them, first-hand, the holistic experience we provide for their students at DIS.”

Highlights from the week included attending classes, updates on DIS Stockholm, Refugee Action café night hosted in conjunction with Social Justice LLC, an academic seminar with the Chief of Danish Defense, a faculty-led excursion to Roskilde Cathedral and Viking Ship Museum, and a concluding event with a tour of Amalienborg and dinner at the tower of Christiansborg.

We thank everyone for traveling to Copenhagen and participating in a successful week of engagement, collaboration, and knowledge sharing!
