Pathways to the Profession Survey 2008: Report and Results
Spencer, Sarah E.; Kreutzer, Kim; Shallenberger, David
Forum on Education Abroad
"Pathways to the Profession" has been a multi-tiered project that has looked at the profession of education abroad and the individuals who serve in the profession. The first Pathways survey was conducted by Dr. Joe Brockington of Kalamazoo College. The first survey analyzed how people came to the field of education abroad, what knowledge and skills they brought with them and what knowledge and skills they felt they needed to do their jobs. Other important issues facing the field were also identified. The current Pathways survey conducted by the Forum on Education Abroad took up where the first survey left off, asking questions on workload, salary, titles and related issues. To gather this information, two online survey instruments were developed to address the complexities of data gathering. Part One of the survey included questions on Organizational Background and was made available to organizations and institutions that work in education abroad. This part of the survey addressed issues related to organizational/institutional structure, such as growth and workload. The second instrument, Part Two: Individual Responses was developed for professionals to address their work in education abroad, including title, job function or responsibilities and salary range. Appended are: (1) Education Abroad Job Responsibilities by Percentage of Job; and (2) Complete List of Education Abroad Titles. (Contains 6 charts and 13 figures.)
