We may have found your next best way to get you through your commute. And yes, it’s a podcast. You’re likely familiar with the EdUp Experience Podcast, and if not, then it’s time you check it out. Available via the usual lineup of streaming services, EdUp Experience ranks in the top 2% of all podcasts worldwide per Listen Notes. And now they’ve launched a new offshoot that we think is worth a listen.
Called EdUp—International, this new niche series is poised to offer interesting business perspectives on all things international education—a topic we know is as important to you as it is to us. Its host is the talented and always engaging James (Jim) Shafer, director of international student recruitment and enrollment at Touro University. The inaugural episode aired Oct. 22, 2023.
And, when you do tune in, you’ll hear another familiar voice (hint: it’s Ben!). We were thrilled when they asked us to be part of the inaugural episode. We were even more excited when we learned we’d get to spend 45 minutes talking with special guest Dr. LaNitra Berger, president and chair of the board of directors of NAFSA and associate professor at George Mason University. What an awesome honor.
In this premier episode, Dr. Berger offers valuable insights about the evolution of international education, including:
- How universities are responding to the significant crises hitting enrollment offices today
- Differing challenges of small-shop international recruitment teams vs the different yet similar challenges faced by larger, well-staffed operations
- Why giving international educators space to dream and ask “what if” is so important
- …And how playing with the (yes, the!) Temptations helped build Dr. Berger’s interest in international education
