I recently presented on the subject of Short Term Study Abroad Program Planning: Top 5 Missteps with Cate Brubaker from Small Planet Studio. I am humbled that we received such kind feedback and a request for more on the subject. We aim to please, so developed the following new teleworkshop: Short-Term Study Abroad Crossroads: Where Planning Missteps Meet Cultural Blunders!
Jerejef to Katie Kreueger. Jerejef is a Wolof word for thank you. Wolof is a Senegalese language used by an ethnic group with the same name and it describes how I felt after reading Katie’s book, “Give With Gratitude: Lessons Learned Listening to West Africa.”
Our session was described as follows: “Muslim”, “Israeli”, “African”, and “American” – the labels that we use to describe others come with heavy baggage and a tremendous burden.
