Time to introduce the team. There will be plenty of new people to meet when I get to Greenland, but these individuals should be highlighted from the start. There are four main team members. These are the professionals making the work connected to the virtual field trip happen:
Study abroad and international travel came to a screeching halt in March of 2020. Fall 2021 is not looking much better for these life-changing student opportunities, as many schools have delayed traditional study abroad out of concern for student well-being and the inability to plan around an unpredictable pandemic.
I am an anthropology professor, writer, researcher and global traveler. In fall of 2021, I led an experiential eLearning project connecting US students (and others) with the people, places, and industries of Greenland. I redesigned a research trip into a virtual field trip for my students who didn't have any Study Abroad options. All of the videos, photos, interviews, and storytelling are still here to enjoy!
