Would you like your students to have the opportunity to explore some of the rich cultural diversity of the United States? Would an experience somewhere else in the United States enhance students’ understanding in your course? Domestic Study Awayprovides the opportunity to integrate student learning through study away from campus in the U.S. Faculty experienced with Domestic Study Away, and staff from the Office of Student Engagement, will discuss examples from existing courses, and the process for developing a Domestic Study Away course or incorporating domestic travel into an existing course. Lisa Sisk from the School of Journalism and Mass Communication will share her experience incorporating domestic travel into a Maymester course. She will share her experience in teaching a course Crisis and Risk Communications for eight Maymester sessions and how leading a group of 15-22 students to Atlanta, GA each year is accomplished. Join us to explore how Domestic Study Away can help students integrate their learning both within and beyond the classroom by challenging students to think beyond their immediate world and gather new experiences.
