On today’s Virginia Conversations, imagine taking a college course in geography and your instructor’s half-way around the world.
One Virginia Tech teacher did it, and he’s back home to share his adventure. John Boyer, better known as “The Plaid Avenger”, explains how he juggled teaching on a “Semester at Sea” voyage without missing a beat back home on campus. Host May-Lily Lee also talks with Kathy Thornton, UVA mechanical aerospace engineering professor, about the Semester at Sea program.
