Service Learning or Learning to Serve? Maximizing Student Efficacy During Short-Term International Service Projects
Through Tulane University’s Altman Program in International Studies and Business, students earn degrees in both liberal arts and business, gain professional-level fluency in a foreign language, and undertake two study abroad experiences. A cornerstone experience of the Altman Program is month-long study abroad in Hanoi, Vietnam, which includes a short-term service experience in remote Mai Chau. In this session, we’ll use this service project as a case study to better equip study abroad directors with the tools necessary to maximize student efficacy, enhance intra- and interpersonal benefits, and encourage student adaptability and team-based collaboration during short-term international service projects.
