A Curriculum Framework for Faculty-Led International Programs in Geography
Mullens, Jo Beth; Cuper, Prudence
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v39 n4 p504-512 2015
Faculty-led international programs are widely considered to be a highly engaging and effective means to enhance students' learning in geography. While international programs hold great opportunity for students' academic and personal growth, actualizing their potential calls for balancing the logistics with a purposefully constructed curriculum. This article presents a curricular framework which applies the straightforward, time-tested learning model originally delineated by Bloom and subsequently updated and adapted by others, into the naturally occurring phases of a faculty-led international program. The framework, while simple in design, provides a clear means to encourage impactful learning within a short-term course.
