Integrating Reflection in Study Abroad is a webinar ONLY – please do not come to the CTE office.
While students can naturally find meaning in their experiences abroad, reflection activities guide their thinking to help them process their time abroad and apply the experiential learning opportunity to their future as students and global citizens. In this presentation, Education Abroad staff and previous Global Classroom leaders will cover successful methods to encourage student reflection abroad.
This workshop counts as an elective towards the Integrative and Experiential Learning certificate.
