Workshop to explore short-term opportunities for international study

Part of the University of Windsor’s internationalization strategy is to expand opportunities for students to develop their global competencies. Traditional exchange programs provide a culturally immersive experience, but not all students have the time, money, or opportunity. Short-term programs can have substantial impact and benefit.

The Centre for Teaching and Learning invites the campus community to a workshop on Developing Short-term International Study Abroad Opportunities for Your Course: Sharing Lessons Learned, on Tuesday, March 30, from 12:30 to 2 p.m.

Instructors, students, and the Office of Experiential Learning will share lessons learned about designing the opportunities, what models are possible, the benefits, and how challenges might be overcome. Panellists include members from the University community — Andrew Allen, Chris Houser, Anna Galka, and Mikayla Bornais — as well as professor Shannon Murray of UPEI, a leading expert in the field.

This workshop is funded by the Government of Canada’s Outbound Student Mobility Pilot Program as part of UWindsor’s ongoing efforts to carry out research and capacity-building activities to increase student participation in outbound mobility by providing more short-term study abroad opportunities to students.
