    Teaching abroad can be a fun and rewarding experience, a career boost, a jump into a new teaching direction, or a way to regain inspiration. If not properly thought out, it can be a nightmare. This discussion will cover what to expect from the experience, including professional concerns such as adapting your curriculum, teaching to non-native speakers, and making materials relevant to non-US students. The panel will cover some of the possible personal and family challenges in moving temporarily abroad. Attendees will also learn about professional opportunities through organizations such as ABA ROLI, Fulbright, and others, as well as international funding through foreign university visitor programs. Audience members may also share their own teaching abroad experiences and what they would have wanted to know right before they taught abroad.
