Abstract

Teaching in a foreign country is an exciting opportunity which contains many interesting challenges and rewards. Exchange teachers must understand differences in culture and educational systems which directly effect how students learn. In the process, teachers often rethink their entire teaching strategy, posing important questions about themselves and their disciplines. The resulting perspectives gained by exchangees adds new dimensions to both their professional and personal lives. This panel will consider exchanges involving teachers of computer science, in particular to the United Kingdom. Panelists will explore major differences in both the educational systems and culture which effect exchangees professionally and personally. Specific information will be given about how exchanges are arranged, what can be exchanged (homes, cars, spouses?), and how exchanges affect families.
