Tools for Developing Short-Term Study Abroad Classes for Geography Studies
Stanitski, Diane; Fuellhart, Kurtis
Journal of Geography, v102 n5 p202-215 Sep 2003
Short-term international field study is an attractive alternative for many students to traditional, longer-term study abroad programs. We present a discussion of critical planning, administrative, and curricular elements related to the development and implementation of such courses. In doing so, we share a number of checklists and planning tools that other instructors may find helpful in the context of developing their own international field studies courses. In addition, we provide representative examples and experiences from two short-term international courses taught by the authors in the Geography Department at Shippensburg University.
