Meaningful Words, Meaningful Experiences: Using Student Reflections to Empower Students Abroad

This session will focus on how our assessment of student experiences abroad has evolved from a narrative-driven, subjectively assessed reflective process to a hybrid that entails both subjective assessment and objective analysis of textual emphasis and trends. This novel approach enables us to promote meaningful student reflection, while using systemic analysis to create a feedback loop that will continue to enhance our students’ experiences abroad.
