Study in America: Taking Students on the Road

There's nothing more invigorating - and frightening - than pushing the comfort zones of both your teaching and your students' learning. As part of a Study in America program for Texas State University's School of Journalism and Mass Communication, Dale Blasingame and a colleague took nine students on a two-week road trip to state and national parks in west Texas and New Mexico. From camping and cooking to travel and technology, this Future20 talk will focus on lessons learned in the process.
