The Internationalization of Experiential Learning for Deaf and Hard of Hearing College Students: A Case Study of Accessibility and Globalization
Peisner, Elizabeth Suzanne
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Southern California
Utilizing a qualitative case study, this dissertation analyzed how one university provided accessibility to international experiential learning opportunities for a primarily disabled student population. The Council for the Advancement of Standards (CAS, 2006) in Higher Education consists of a self-assessment guide adapted as a framework to analyze globalization efforts. Faculty and administrators used inclusive recruitment, program design, and international partner selection for a disabled population, in response to the major challenges deaf and hard of hearing students face. This includes deficiencies in awareness of this population, insufficiency in program designs for disabled students, and stratifications imposed in foreign communities during overseas studies. This was aligned within a disability equity and access construct, reviewed in CAS (2006), and expanded for inclusive design in globalization efforts.
