Abstract

"Study Abroad: A Graduate Student's Perspective" (Caleb Wilemon)
Study Abroad--its value, its format, its logistics--is a hotly debated topic. In this session, we will entangle ourselves in the debate by examining a student's, an instructor's, and an administrator's perspective on the value of the study abroad experience, the comparative rigor of study abroad vs. home campus courses, the real and assumed improvement in linguistic proficiency, and the real and assumed increase of understanding of cultural practices and products.
