University of Texas Pan American, Edinburg, Texas: A Reciprocal Study Abroad Program with the Leuphana University, Lunenburg, Germany
Garza, Joe M., Jr.
Journal of College Teaching & Learning, v5 n4 p33-38 Apr 2008
This paper describes the process for expanding an existing ten year study abroad program between two universities, the University of Texas Pan American, Edinburg, Texas, and the Leuphana University, Lueneburg, Germany. The model for this reciprocal educational program will include a process for enrollment, suggested curricula, course scheduling, sources for financial aid and student living accommodations. Technology will be a resource tool to increase student access for bridging these educational barriers. This model will facilitate the process for students from both universities to study abroad for a semester while earning credits in their area of study. This paper will further address cultural diversities and language differences that may hinder communications and impede learning.
