Integrative Project Title: Waging the War for Mutual Understanding: The Role of International Educational Exchange in the U.S. Government's Post-September 11th Public Diplomacy Campaign
Description of your current position: I'm Assistant Director of iEARN-USA (http://us.iearn.org/), the U.S. center of iEARN (International Education and Resource Network, http://www.iearn.org). We are a global network, started in 1988, that uses technology to enable teachers and young people to reach across political, cultural, and linguistic differences to design and collaborate on projects together.
Something special about your TC experience: I am grateful to have had the opportunity to work with and visit OSI-Uzbekistan as part of policy and evaluation courses taught by Professors Steiner-Khamsi, Valerio, and Magno. Spending time with our OSI colleagues gave me an immense appreciation for their ongoing efforts to support open regional and international education networks.
