Lessons Learned: A Critical Inquiry of Study Abroad
In this session, we’ll problematize processes and outcomes related to the experience of planning a study abroad program (Saldaña, 2012) to increase student consciousness about the impact of their travel on the host country. Participants will discover ways to create programs where students critically analyze their experiences in a relevant and meaningful way; one that leads to increased understanding of the self (as an individual and representative of their societies) and “Others” (Delpit, 2006).
