There is an interesting article in today’s Chronicle of Higher Education on programs that some colleges are experimenting with to provide international experiences for their professors. I agree that study abroad is useful not only for students but also for professors, and it is great to see that some colleges are taking the lead to make this possible.
In our own program in Rome, we have been working hard to help other professors and graduate students (our future professors) to experience Rome with our students.
