A Program Guide for a Re-Entry/Transition Seminar-Workshop.
Asuncion-Lande, Nobleza C., Ed.
This paper is a guide to developing re-entry and transition workshops and seminars for foreign students who have completed or will complete education in the United States and then return to their own culture and nation. The guide was developed based in part on a conference designed to assist students to return to their own countries and fulfill their roles. Following a preface and an introduction, the paper discusses key issues and elements in planning and carrying out such a workshop including planning (purposes, program approach, arguments for and against academic credit), a program model design, participants, announcement and publicity, selection of the site, selection of staff, on-site administration, budget, workshop expansion, plan implementation, evaluation, and follow-up. Included are detailed model program design for both one-day and weekend workshops with several variations. Extensive appendixes contain examples of reentry challenges, a case study, a creative problem-solving sequence, discussion probes, role playing, group structure and values exercises, an inventory of re-entry problems and a sample evaluation design. A resource list cites 11 books, 25 articles, eight films, and five simulation games. (JB)
