Building Capacity through International Student Affairs Exchange
Roberts, Dennis C.; Roberts, Darbi L.
Journal of College and Character, v13 n3 Aug 2012
In order to build local capacity in an international higher education setting, the Qatar Study Tour and Young Professionals Institute (QST and YPI) was created as an inquiry-based learning experience shared among diverse participants and designed to enhance learning at both the local and international levels. The intent of the QST and YPI model was to be more respectful of the host international setting and to offer greater educational impact than conventional study tours. This heightened impact was confirmed by both quantitative and qualitative assessment.
