"We went from drab to fab." 

Martin Rosales, M.Ed.
Program Manager
Global Engagement
Texas A&M University

"Our office didn’t have the bandwidth to dedicate to creating robust, interactive content for our student populations. We didn’t lack the knowledge, experience, or passion for the work – we lacked time.

 

With the TTP, we went from drab to fab. The content is engaging, practical, and fun. It is designed to be accessible for all types of travelers and provides resources and information in a way that stick.

 

It's been refreshing to work with a company that is passionate about helping others and comes at traveler preparation from a place of support, not from a place of making a quick buck. Having practitioners at WorldKind who want to collaborate for the greater good has been refreshing."

"The students are loving it, and, more importantly, they are doing it." 


Victoria Christman, Ph.D.
Director
Center for Global Learning

Texas A&M University

"It was awesome. So far, the students are loving it, and, more importantly, they are doing it.

I keep peeking in, and everyone who was in the room for the PDO intro session hopped on and spent some time on the course. That's success! 

I love it, and it definitely holds their attention a million times better than yours truly and a boring powerpoint, which no one watched, really, and which was therefore completely ineffective."

"Our Provost is very excited about the TTP from a liability perspective."

Holly Sypniewski, Ph.D.
Previous Director, Faculty Development and Global Initiatives
Texas A&M University

"Many students need so much help and come with very little knowledge of travel basics, so a lot of time needs to be spent explaining insurance and other general issues. Anything I don’t have to do myself is a great help!

I would encourage anyone considering using the TTP to explore for themselves what it has to offer. It covers everything that’s generally applicable while allowing students to personalize their experience

Education Abroad offices can benefit from the TTP as you ensure comprehensive coverage. Our Provost is very excited about the TTP from a liability perspective."

"A great tool"

Patricia Sagasti Suppes, Ph.D.
Director
Global Engagement
Stockton University


"The TTP is a great tool because it is not used to replace in-person contact but as a tool to support it. It allows for real-life follow-up by taking away the need to cover standard topics.

The TTP allows EA staff to address issues students bring to them, to focus on more specific information applicable to their destinations and programs, and to have deeper conversations without spending too much time on the basics."
