Start in the Middle: On-Site to Re-Entry & Back to Maximize Student Learning
This interactive session starts with the premise that study abroad educators need to begin in the middle – on-site and re-entry – to more effectively achieve desired study abroad learning objectives. Using research and theoretical frameworks, presenters will introduce practical ideas to help students maximize their intercultural and career-related learning. These include both on-site and re-entry activities for intentional interventions and reflection. Presenters will share impactful strategies and techniques that can be adapted to any setting. Participants will depart with materials and ideas for immediate implementation.
