Professors Administrators is the forum where international educators can share their programs, materials and ideas.
Organized by the association Eduespaña, the primary goal of the program is to introduce U.S. institutions of higher education to Spanish universities, language schools, business schools and other international education providers, offering a wide range of opportunities to American students.
These workshops have the added value of an on-site experience for decision makers considering Spain as a destination for their study abroad programs.
Invitations to attend the Workshops are extended to university-level international education administrators, chairs of academic departments an faculty leading short-term programs, interested in exploring the diverse opportunities currently available in Spain.
The program and itinerary will include meetings with representatives of some of the most prominent public and private educational institutions and organizations, as well as scheduled visits to universities and education centers in various provinces.

"Agradeceros la cálida acogida en España que nos habéis dado igual que la atención al detalle que habéis puesto en todo punto del congreso y en los viajes que hemos hecho por vuestro hermoso país. Fue para mí, y estoy seguro que para los otros participantes también, una experiencia tan grata como instructiva, y vuelvo con muchos contactos útiles con que ir desarrollando mis planes curriculares. ¡Muchísimas gracias!

"... this wonderful opportunity certainly supported the College’s mission to establish firm relationships with higher education institutions in Spain and around the world, and for the ultimate benefit of both American and Spanish students. As the visiting representative from the College, I so appreciated the opportunity to meet many individuals from Spanish schools and universities and visit several cities. It was an educational, pleasurable, and inspirational experience. Your country is beautiful, and everyone I met was kind and welcoming."

Partnerships in Spain
You might be interested in establishing agreements with Spanish Institutions in terms of faculty and student mobility. Here are the most popular types of agreements:
Study Abroad programs: Courses are taken (usually for academic credit) in a foreign environment. These could affect students interested in taking courses at a foreign institutions either through direct enrollment or institutional exchange. Students may be payin
g to the home institution, however, the fee goes directly to the host institution.
Island programs: A group of US students receive instruction at an overseas institution (that might be the campus of a university). The courses are taught in English. The main disadvantage of an "Island" program is that usually they are not fully integrated into the campus life of the host country.
Student exchange program: The student is being exchanged to the foreign university (and is therefore taking courses with local students taught by local faculty). They choose to live in a foreign country to learn language and culture. The different institutions participating in the program will trade off students in this fashion, and the tuition fee goes to the home institution. The students live with a host family, who are usually unpaid volunteers and often have a child the same age who has also participated (or is going to participate) in a similar exchange program.
Faculty led study trips: Usually short trips to a foreign country in order to learn from the local culture on site. This tour is normally a part of a class or the course itself. The instructor leads the group of students and develops educational activities within the local environment.
International internships: An internship (or another type of experiential learning activity) that takes place overseas. Sometimes, the internship is combined with coursework at an academic institution located where the internship takes place.
