Considerations for international educators during COVID-19

May 13, 2020

“The impact of COVID-19 will remain a source of significant risk to international travel for an undetermined amount of time,” write James H Conway, Ronald G Machoian, and Christopher W Olsen. The authors thus highlight the key issues concerning overseas travel that international educators must consider in the coming months, including local transmission of cases of COVID-19, societal and infrastructure impacts of COVID-19, and the efficacy of partners and hosts abroad. “Ultimately, international educators must recognize that the study abroad environment has been recast in complex ways that will take time to understand and address with necessary confidence,” conclude the authors.
