Preparing students to cross cultures

Phillip Motley, Assistant Professor of Communications, Elon University

Amanda Sturgill, Associate Professor of Communications, Elon University

Steven Duke, Director of the Center for International Studies, Wake Forest

This workshop session will  discuss and demonstrate techniques for engaging students in reflecting about the cultures and communities that they will encounter when they do study abroad, service-learning and other experiential coursework. Participants will talk about the role of preparation in formal curriculum and have a chance to participate in an exercise designed to engage students with a new culture through local experiences and to develop their own exercise appropriate to their course.
