Noncredit Education Abroad (NCEA): Redefining Education and Building Your Reporting Capacity

Wednesday, May 31
10:00 AM - 11:15 AM
LACC, Room 511

Despite noncredit education abroad (NCEA) becoming a mainstream option for students to gain international and practical educational experiences, it is still underreported and not fully understood. Using recent research, panelists will highlight NCEA trends, examine what defines an NCEA activity, and discuss best practices for strengthening data collection on campus.

Brook J. Blahnik

Associate Director
University of Minnesota-Twin Cities

Brook Blahnik is Associate Director for the Learning Abroad Center at the University of Minnesota. He is passionate about implementing technology to improve processes for students and staff. Brook developed an e-commerce site in the early days of the web and supported a student information system solo and on a shoe string budget -- he seems to have a soft spot for small, scrappy organizations. Now that he’s at a decidedly large organization, he oversees outbound student operations including advising and enrollment systems management, data systems management, data analytics and enrollment reporting. He is trained in SQL, HTML, CSS and PHP and enjoys helping LAC staff get the most out of the technology available. He holds degrees from the University of Wisconsin and Boston College.
