J. Lu: Innovative Study-Abroad Experiences to Connect, Engage and Empower (Q3)

659 views

Published on

Drawing from the Chicago Public Schools (CPS) summer program in Shanghai and Portland Public Schools China Research Residency (CRR) in Suzhou, participants will examine how two study-abroad models can increase long-term motivation, connect students to the culture and improve language proficiency. CPS emphasizes strong ties to host institutions; the CRR emphasizes small-group field studies tied to
proficiency standards. Participants will learn about maximizing students’ study-abroad experiences and will develop strategies for running a successful program — including practical predeparture training and empowering in-country and post-program activities. Video footage of students in China and sample fieldstudy designs will be presented.
