What Are We Teaching Abroad? Faculty Goals for Short-Term Study Abroad Courses
Niehaus, Elizabeth; Wegener, Ashley
Innovative Higher Education, v44 n2 p103-117 Apr 2019
Based on survey data from over 400 faculty members who taught short-term study abroad courses, the purpose of this study was to identify the types of goals that faculty members have in teaching short-term study abroad courses and the relationship between faculty background characteristics (i.e., race, gender, discipline, and prior experience) and their teaching goals. By further understanding the goals that these faculty members have for their study abroad programs, we are better able to assess how these programs may or may not be meeting overall internationalization goals and then to use this information to assist faculty members and higher education administrators in finding ways to further align study abroad goals with the broader goals of international education.
