The Cultural Adaptation Process during a Short-Term Study Abroad Experience in Swaziland
Conner, Nathan W.; Roberts, T. Grady
Journal of Agricultural Education, v56 n1 p155-171 2015
Globalization continuously shapes our world and influences post-secondary education. This study explored the cultural adaptation process of participants during a short-term study abroad program. Participants experienced stages which included initial feelings, cultural uncertainty, cultural barriers, cultural negativity, academic and career growth, feelings throughout the program, and cultural growth. The findings from this study should be used to design and implement short-term study abroad programs that infuse cultural learning with academic learning and focus on experiential learning practices.
