Let’s talk about you for a second

It's no secret that study abroad experiences have an enormous impact on your students and your institution. But right now, we're talking about you. All of our programs offer educators the chance to further their craft while traveling abroad by offering a range of opportunities to connect with other globally minded professors. It's a win-win...win.

Network with other faculty members

EF offers a wide range of opportunities to connect with other globally minded faculty and grow as an educator. First-time faculty leaders can participate in our Orientation and Development Seminars in Paris or Barcelona. Experienced faculty leaders have the opportunity to join other educators on our Professional Development and Networking Experiences, developed specifically for EF Study Abroad faculty, in locations like Berlin, Lisbon, and beyond.

Attend our international orientations

We want you to feel confident when you lead your first program. That’s why we invest in every first-time Group Leader and train you for free in Paris, in Barcelona or via webinars you can take part in from home. After you enroll ten students you can choose your destination or the webinar that works best for your schedule. Orientation and Development Seminar attendees will see a program in action with a Field Director, experience walking tours, meals and hotels and sightseeing at popular cultural destinations, learn helpful tips and advice from experienced Group Leaders, discuss long term goals for your program, and so much more.

Learn from (and with) experienced faculty

By leading an EF group abroad, you’ll engage in enriching professional development and growth for you, alongside other experienced faculty. As an educator, as a professional, and as an individual you’ll develop a whole host of competencies to add to your professional dossier. These experiences are designed to deepen your global perspective and give you skills to bring back to your campus through expert-led workshops and immersion in local culture.
