Reflections on My Career as an International Adult Educator.
Cassara, Beverly Benner
This document is the personal narrative of a woman who has spent her career as an international adult educator. The narrative begins with the author's graduate studies in West Berlin in 1975, during which she researched the education and career pathways of professional women in West Berlin's universities. The remainder of the narrative is devoted to her teaching career at the University of the District of Columbia (UDC), a public university with a student body that is two-thirds Black. Special attention is paid to the author's efforts to develop and find financial support for international educational exchange programs that would allow UDC students to study abroad in various African countries, including Ghana, Kenya, Nairobi, Seychelles, and Tanzania. Also discussed are a master's-level international education exchange program that the author developed and that involved having students earn graduate-level credits while serving in the Peace Corps and simultaneously carrying out directed study, research, or internships in developing countries. The document concludes with a brief description of the author's activities as an international adult educator at the University of Southern Maine and as a member of the executive committee of the International Council for Adult Education.
