Yes, I'd listen, as long as they were provided free of charge for NAFSA members (at least). I’ve been disappointment with NAFSA offering webinars for a fee for members, so I would hope that a podcast would be free. Ideal topics would be anything timely. Also, occasional Q&A with governmental officials might be useful. I would think once a month would be great but no more than twice a month. While I understand the ...more »
Regulatory Podcast - Would you listen?
NAFSA staff is thinking through the feasibility of creating audio podcasts on regulatory issues that would be hosted by our Regulatory Practice staff, Steve Springer and David Fosnocht.
Here are the questions we are currently considering:
- 1. What would be ideal topics for regulatory podcasts?

Please submit a new idea to provide your feedback on any or all of these questions!

Yes, I would listen. I think that a weekly/bi-weekly podcast would be sufficient, if it were an hour or so long. This would also give you time to ask for feedback or questions from listeners and then prepare to address them on the show.
Ideas are abundant, anything ranging from Student Services to admission and Immigration guidance. It would also be possible to have guests hosts call in and share their expertise.
I would love to have a resource where I could learn about the various regulatory issues in the field of international education. As some with a traditional K-12 teaching background trying to transition into higher ed and international ed, I lack some of the background knowledge. If it were weekly or biweekly, it might be helpful to focus some weeks on introductory or intermediate experience issues and some one advanced ...more »
