Challenging Students to Become Reasonable Adventurers in Global Contexts
Date: Monday, April 24, 2017
Time: 12:30 pm pacific / 1:30 pm mountain / 2:30 pm central / 3:30 pm eastern
Dr. Michael Stebleton, Associate Professor, University of Minnesota-Twin Cities
Lynn C. Anderson, Academic Director, CEPA Foundation, former Dean of International Education, UC San Diego
What does it mean for students to have a world-relatedness? Do our students with whom we interact on a daily basis have a flare for change? More importantly, how do we as study abroad educators foster these traits in our undergraduate students? Using the student development concept of the reasonable adventurer, Dr. Stebleton will discuss strategies for challenging students to become reasonable adventurers in their own approach to learning. He will share some of his own ideas that he applies to his own students – in the classroom and abroad – and encourage participants to share their own promising practices.
- To define and discuss the traits of the reasonable adventurer and how it applies to study abroad opportunities.
- To gain an understanding of how and why the reasonable adventurer is especially relevant to today’s college students.
- To share and discuss experiences and ideas to foster critical thinking, global learning, interpersonal communication, and other qualities through high-impact practice in study abroad.
The presentation will last approximately 40 minutes and a 20 min. interactive Q&A discussion with the presenters will follow.
Registration is available free of charge to faculty, staff, advisors, and administrators at colleges and universities.
