One Year Later: The Influence of Short-Term Study Abroad Experiences on Students
Rowan-Kenyon, Heather T.; Niehaus, Elizabeth K.
Journal of Student Affairs Research and Practice, v48 n2 p213-228 2011
Using transformational learning as a framework and a case study approach, this study explored how students make meaning of their experiences 1 year after a weeklong study abroad experience and examines how they integrate their study abroad experience into their lives. The findings include that students who had engaged in subsequent learning opportunities continued to find meaning in their study abroad experience. The experience had faded into a distant memory for students who did not integrate the experience into their lives in some way.
