International education recruitment can be a very intimidating process, as both schools and candidates often make decisions to relocate to another country over a very limited window without ever having visited the country. What are some of the best practices, challenges, and opportunities in international education recruitment practices that lead to the best chance of success for both candidates and schools?
This episode of Educators Without Borders is hosted by Dr. Wallace Ting (Co-Founder, SchoolRubric) with special panelists Gustavo Sever (Superintendent, Colegio Internacional de Caracas), Dr. Alan Phan (Founder & CEO, Diversity Collective), and Dr. Dana Watts (Director of Learning, Research & Outreach, ISS).
