About matthew goode
I was born in Sydney, Australia to an Australian mother and an American father, and primarily grew up in the midwestern United States (Indiana and Michigan). I moved to Minnesota to attend Carleton College as an undergraduate and stayed in the Land of 10,000 Lakes for another 20 years. I worked for many years with international students and faculty at the University of Minnesota and Harvard University, and earned my doctorate in comparative and international development education at the University of Minnesota in 2013. In 2015, I joined Boston College's Center for Teaching Excellence, where I manage and lead workshops for faculty and graduate instructors. I also teach “Thinking Intercultural Competence,” a seminar for undergraduate students, and an online course, "Reflections on Being Abroad," at Boston College. In addition, I have served as an instructor for "Cross-Cultural Competence in a Divided Age," a course offered by Brookline Adult & Community Education in the Boston area. I actively publish and present on topics related to cross-cultural competence, and live with my partner, Jeffrey, and our Rottweiler mix, Hildy, in Boston, Massachusetts.
