Notes: This workshop is part of the Focus on Teaching Week offerings through CTE. Open to faculty (registration is required).
Description: International experiential education provides students with an important complement to classroom education, and can result in learning that cannot be realized in any other way. Sometimes this learning can be transformative in nature, particularly if it is intentionally identified and supported. However, without appropriate attention to the differences between the traditional classroom environment and the situated learning environments of international programs, much of the promise of international experiential education can become lost.
This session explores how to define and better support the learning that is unique to various forms of international educational experiences offered by many North American universities and encourages participants to explore implications for curriculum design, delivery, and assessment.
Facilitator: Dr. Nancy Johnston, Simon Fraser University
