Workshop: Preparing Students to Study Abroad

  • Date: Monday, August 19, 2019
  • Time: 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
  • Location: Preus Library, Hovde Room

This half-day workshop, facilitated by Lori Stanley and Jon Lund, is designed for faculty and staff leaders of Luther’s study abroad programs, including those preparing to lead a travel course for the first time as well as experienced leaders willing to share their own approaches to orientation while also learning from others. We will discuss scheduling and content of orientation meetings, uses of KATIE during the predeparture period, written and discussion-based (p)reflection exercises and other types of predeparture activities, how (and why) to talk about health matters with students, and team building. Faculty participants will receive a $25 stipend.
