Expert Credentials: 

I have been a Fulbright Senior Scholar in South Africa as well as a Visiting Fellow at the University of Pretoria. Recently, I was named Profesor Emerito at the Universidad Tecnológica Equinnoccial in Quito, Ecuador and helped to create and teach the first Diplomado in University Teaching approved by the Ecuadorian higher education commission. Over the past 25 years, I have been Secretary for North America of the International Society for Teacher Education and served as co-convener of two international seminars for that organization. At the University of Maryland, I created and taught a University Honors seminar for many years, "international and Multicultural Perspectives in Education," and then a study abroad version of that course which is held in the Netherlands, Germany, and Belgium. I am currently Project Director of the GATE Fellows project, a faculty development and curriculum development initiative funded by the Longview Foundation and focused on internationalization of teacher education; and I chair the College of Education International Advisory Committee. My work in South Africa and South America has been primarily devoted to improvement of college/university teaching. and I have worked with colleagues in many different countries on aspects of teacher education.
