Welcome and Introduction

Welcome to the blog for the International Education 2013 trip to Ireland.  Four students and two course leaders from the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) at the University of Louisville will study different topics related to higher education institutions and special education.  The International Education Ireland team will have opportunities to compare and contrast Irish models for postsecondary education. 

The team will be studying at the University College Cork (UCC), a university founded in 1845 that is a constituent university of the national University of Ireland.  At UCC, the team will have classes with UCC student participants and presentations and interviews with UCC officials.  We will also have an opportunity to interact with the Cork Institute of Technology.

The team is led by Dr. Oscar Aliaga and Shavon Wagner. 

Graduate students on the trip include:
Jennifer McGrew - School Counseling
Tristan Hilpert - Administration of Higher Education
Matt Lerza - Special Education
Rachel Croley - Administration of Higher Education

No trip to Ireland would be complete without visiting some local landmarks and cultural excursions.  We invite you to follow us as we experience Ireland.
