In With the Locals: Why On-Site Connection Matters


Published on

How do we break the third wall between study abroad group bubble voyeurism to allow for meaningful, authentic engagement abroad? During this session, we'll investigate the implications of involving local parties in faculty-led study abroad, particularly for pointedly focused curriculum in non-traditional areas of study. Faculty, student, and provider perspectives speak to experiences of international collaboration, challenges and successes, and how to utilize local networks to coordinate a meaningful and engaging experience abroad. Additionally, faculty and resident staff will reflect specifically on seeking out relevant and timely contacts and experiences and will provide personal examples of how to position a program experience and curriculum to facilitate growth.
