Time Enough to Change: Measuring Impacts of Short-Term Faculty-Led Programs

Friday, June 2
1:30 PM - 2:30 PM
LACC, Room 410

The majority of U.S. students who study abroad do so for less than a semester, often as participants in faculty-led programs. Three institutions administering such programs present surprising findings on the programs’ impacts on students, and discuss instrument selection, methodology, and alignment with on-campus learning.

Learning Objectives:
