Study Abroad: Is It All About Me? Taking the ‘Self’ Out of the Center

This thought-provoking session will encourage participants to consider reshaping the way they guide students to interact with and process the study abroad experience. Participants will gain insight into the student perspective based on feedback collected from study abroad returnees as well as useful vocabulary and techniques that can be used to discuss identity without creating a self-centered focus on study abroad. The goal of this session is to engage in discussion so practitioners can re-frame their approach to advising, or, at the very least, begin a conversation about why it may be necessary to do so.
