Smith, Jayne E.; McAuliffe, Garrett; Rippard, Kelly S.
Counselor Education and Supervision, v53 n4 p306-319 Dec 2014
Research on the impact of study abroad curricula on student learning is limited. In this study, data were collected from students the last day abroad and 2 weeks and 6 to 9 months after returning home from a study abroad program. Eight codes conceptualized a grounded theory of student learning during and after completion of the study abroad curriculum. Transformative learning and practical implications for curriculum design are discussed.
