Adolescent Development of Global Competencies through a Short-Term International Study-Travel Experience to China
Gould, Rachel Zucker
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Boston University
The capacity of adolescents to develop global competencies was examined by collecting and analyzing data from 62 student-travelers before, during, and after a short-term study-travel experience to China. The Global Perspectives Inventory was used to compare the student-travelers' perspectives before and after travel with a comparison group of 60 non-travelers. Experiences, guided reflections, and development were identified through journals, oral reflections, focus group interviews, and surveys provided by the adolescents, teacher-leaders, and parents or guardians. They provide insight into structuring a short-term study-travel experience for adolescents and might inform institutions about the learning experiences reported to be critical in the development of global competencies.
