Intervening in the Learning of U.S. Students Abroad
Vande Berg, Michael
Journal of Studies in International Education, v11 n3-4 p392-399 2007
This article traces the outlines of a profound and ongoing change in U.S. attitudes about study abroad. In chronicling the shift from a Junior Year Abroad paradigm that governed study abroad theory and practice as recently as two decades ago, to an emerging Student Learning paradigm that increasingly informs study abroad attitudes and goals today, the author argues that there is a widening gulf between what U.S. study abroad professionals believe their students ought to learn through studying abroad and what many programs abroad aim to provide. (Contains 2 notes.)
