One of my Favorite Places for International Education Researching and Writing

Remembering one of my summer 2015 work stations on the shores of Lake Michigan in Door County, Wisconsin where I began work on my 'A Historical Overview of International Education Scholarship and the Role of the Scholar–Practitioner' chapter for the forthcoming book "International Higher Education's Scholar-Practitioners: Bridging Research and Practice".  Soon I'll begin work on a new book chapter that I will co-write with two other colleagues (unable to disclose chapter title or focus of book at this time) but I won't have as nice of an "office" this time around!

That IHEC Blog post on the computer screen is about and includes photos of my thirteen year old daughter heading off on her twelve day service learning trip to Ecuador last August!
