9780130499974: Study Abroad: How to Get the Most Out of Your Experience

For all Study Abroad programs.

Via personalized exercises, this self-directed workbook guides students through five distinct strands of development, all of which are necessary to fully capitalize on their study abroad experience. Strands include: personal development, learning about one's own culture, learning about another culture, professional development, and learning a language, and each is addressed at the three crucial phases of the experience: before, during and after the sojourn. One major goal of the text is to offer a purposeful agenda to help students move from being the conventional tourist to an explorer who truly acquires an authentic view of another culture.

Review:


"By far the most exciting aspect of this book is that it provides an explicit mechanism for engaging students in the success of their own ventures overseas. It spells out for them what we educators think is , important, and hope they will accomplish, and, more important, it does this in a way that is not condescending and is unlikely to be off-putting to students." — William Cressey, Executive Vice President and Chief Academic Officer, Council on International Educational Exchange


From the Back Cover:

Written by a study abroad coordinator (Musky) and a faculty director from a foreign language department (Dowell), Study Abroad: How to Get the Most Out of Your Experience is designed to maximize the quality and impact of this unique experience!
