Education Abroad and the Undergraduate Experience
Education Abroad and the Undergraduate Experience, Critical Perspectives and Approaches to Integration with Student Learning and Development, is edited by Elizabeth Brewer andAnthony C. Ogden.
Co-published with NAFSA, this volume focuses on two questions. First, how can education abroad be embedded into undergraduate education so that students experience it as an integral component of their education and something they help shape, rather than as time away from their education and as a commodity to be consumed?
Second, how can colleges and universities maximize the educational value of education abroad by forging stronger connections between it and other undergraduate experiences? The volume argues that learning abroad be positioned within the work of the larger institution and students’ overall education.
This book questions many current assumptions and introduces the power of an integrative approach to education abroad. This allows students be afforded multiple opportunities and ongoing support to draw connections with their learning abroad with other dimensions of their undergraduate education.
For everyone involved in international education – whether SIOs, faculty, department chairs or deans – the critical questions and new perspectives offered here will inform and shape the growing movement to integrate education abroad with the overall undergraduate experience.
