Faculty-Led Programs: Framing Intercultural learning on faculty-led programs: Helping students engage with their hosts
Date: Monday, October 24, 2016
Time: 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm (Central Time Zone)
Steven Duke, Ph.D., Assistant Vice President for Global Strategy and International Initiatives at the University of Nebraska, a four-campus system
Lynn C. Anderson, Academic Director, CEPA Foundation
This webinar takes an in-depth look at strategies for framing intercultural learning on programs led by home-campus faculty. It focuses on both the pre-departure and while-abroad stages and will offer suggestions for simple but powerful ways faculty and education abroad professionals can frame the experience to motivate students and provide students with specific and concrete examples and exercises on how to engage. This extended and intentional interaction with host-country individuals is a key part of the cross-cultural learning experience.
The presentation will last approximately 40 minutes and a 20 min. interactive Q&A discussion with the presenters will follow.
Registration is free of charge to faculty, study abroad staff, and administrators at colleges and universities.
Employees and staff from third-party or educational providers, other institutions or companies in the US or abroad, independent consultants, or other individuals are asked to make a contribution of at least $125 to register and participate in the webinar. This contribution will help support the charitable projects which CEPA Foundation currently has undertaken in Vuelta Grande, Guatemala.
