A Reflection on a Cross-Cultural Internship for International Students Studying outside Their Homeland
Banks, Joy
Journal of International Special Needs Education, v16 n2 p102-113 Oct 2013
Using internship experiences to instruct international students in the acquisition of improved knowledge, skills, and attitudes relating to individuals with disabilities in developing nations is one approach to increase the possibility that individuals with disabilities are provided equitable education. An Associate's Degree Program provided by the Catholic University of America in Belgium for students from developing countries was designed to accomplish these goals. This investigation examines the components of the internship that contributed to students' transformations, which were monitored through collaborative Blackboard discussions, mentor comments, film clips, and collaborative class discussions. Findings reflect positive increases toward professional and personal dispositions.
