Closing BOLD Talk - B eyond our Boundaries: Rethinking Educational Travel
Thursday, Feb 6th 8:45-9:45 a.m.

Beyond our boundaries, into new destinations, is where experiential learning ensues: Changing perspectives, making connections, sharing, creating transformational moments and becoming life-long learners.

International filmmaker and educator, Gerry Ellis will share his impressions and explore how we can synthesize all we've experienced and learned - to look beyond the boundaries of what educational travel is, to what it can be.
