Integrating Global Learning with the University Experience: Higher-Impact Study Abroad and Off-Campus Domestic Study

Center for Engaged Learning, Elon University

June 11, 2017 – June 12, 2017

The Center for Engaged Learning invites proposals for conference papers, panel presentations, posters, or roundtables related to research on integrating off-campus study with students’ broader university experiences.

Hundreds of thousands of students study off-campus for academic credit each year, and many universities identify these experiences as high-impact practices that augment on-campus global learning. Global learning through study abroad and off-campus domestic study fits into a larger context of students’ educational experiences, but questions remain about how global experiences affect and are affected by the students and educators who participate and by the curricula and other institutional factors related to these experiences. By conceptualizing study abroad and off-campus domestic study as global learning practices that are integral components of university education, practitioners and scholars can create higher-impact off-campus study.
