Educational Use of Foreign Students and Americans Returned from Study Abroad: A Project To Improve Global Education.
Mills, Thomas J.; Campbell, Jean B.
This final report describes activities and accomplishments of a three-year project at the University of Oregon to utilize Americans returning from study abroad and international students as educational resources in global education to campus, K-12 schools, and the community. Courses were initiated on overseas study predeparture, overseas study re-entry, cross-cultural issues, and global education for teachers. The project involved 93 students returning from study abroad who made 218 visits to K-12 schools and participated in a variety of related campus and community activities. International students made presentations and spoke to language classes. Two courses for teachers were designed and three one-credit courses for students preparing or returning from study abroad and international students were implemented. The study was evaluated positively by participants and those receiving their services and major project goals were met. Individual sections of the report describe the project's purpose, background and origins, goals and associated accomplishments, evaluation, dissemination, and continuation plans. Thirteen appendices provide data on participants, course syllabi, participant questionnaire results, the external program evaluation report, and the program brochure. (DB)
