Los Angeles Community Colleges: A Guide to the International Education Program.
Culton, Donald R.
Designed for instructors in the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) interested in conducting a travel study class, this guide describes and explains the requirements of the district's International Education Program (IEP). Following introductory material stressing the importance of international education, the guide reviews the purpose of the IEP, i.e., to develop international and intercultural understanding through travel study classes, faculty and student exchanges, and curriculum development projects. The next sections review the history of international education in the LACCD and the supervision and administration of the IEP. Next, travel study classes are described in terms of college credit and community service offerings, instructor selection, use of travel contractors, fiscal components, student registration, student financial aid, and other requirements. A guide to planning and conducting a successful college credit travel class is then presented, including suggestions for selecting a location and travel contractor; developing brochures and promoting the class; conducting pre-departure instruction, orientation, and registration; and fulfilling post-trip requirements. A list of classes conducted between 1977 and 1981 are provided. Appendices include a variety of forms, outlines of program requirements, information on evaluating contractors and liability and insurance, and other relevant materials. (AYC)
