Millennials and Technology: How Keeping up with the Kids Fosters Engaged Learning and Community Abroad

What learning outcomes do students achieve by producing podcasts during short-term study abroad, in relation to course goals and their real-world peer audience? Podcasts have become standard pedagogical resources in higher education; however, many are faculty-produced or created to disseminate course content. In this session, we will outline how attendees can embrace technology to enhance students’ experience abroad, with special focus on intercultural development, intentional experiential learning, and reflection.
