Music crosses many borders and boundaries, and an immersive educational short-term study abroad experience can be an exciting addition to traditional music curriculum. Music and Music Technology provide a modular and creative platform with which to explore and challenge our worldview. With experience in both domestic trips (Nashville, Chicago, St. Louis, and NYC) and international trips (London, Berlin, Northern Ireland, and Denmark), this tutorial will share tips and best practices for Coordinators and Educators interested in researching, planning and implementing credit and non-credit educational trips for students. Covered topics include; learning outcomes and assessment; researching and outreaching potential hosts; building buy-in with faculty, administration and students; budgeting and flight arrangements; pre, post-trip activities and reflections; and security, insurance, and behavior concerns.
