We introduced you to Dr. Shane Sokoll’s blog yesterday, through which he is sharing his experience as a Fulbright Senior Scholar in Santa Cruz de Tenerife at La Universidad de La Laguna (ULL).

Sokoll’s time in Spain has clearly presented many wonderful learning opportunities. These include the opportunity to learn about a completely different culture, the opportunity to help build connections between academics in Spain and the U.S., the opportunity to learn from ULL faculty and students, and much more.
