This morning’s Inside Higher Education reports on current research on whether and what students learn from study abroad.
Earlham is a participant in a major study featured in the article (“Quantifying Study Abroad’s Impact)”, written by Elizabeth Redden and reporting on panels at the recent Forum on Study Abroad conference.
The Great Lakes Colleges Association, the Associated Colleges of the Midwest and the Associated Colleges of the South have developed a “Learning from Study Abroad” survey that is now being administered to students at colleges in the three consortia both before and after they go on study abroad. (Earlham belongs to the GLCA.)
Alas, it doesn’t appear that the survey has yielded much in the way of findings. Too soon: stay tuned.
