Martin, William J.
A description is provided of Williamsport Area Community College's (WACC's) South American Field Experience program, a travel/study program for faculty and staff designed to provide a variety of learning experiences through a three week trip to Peru, Chile, Argentina, and Brazil. Chapter I presents an overview of the development of the project, including information on WACC's past achievements in infusing an international dimension into its curriculum and staff development activities, corporate sponsorship for the project, participant selection and profiles, staff development planning, and publicity. Chapter II presents the participants' action plans for the trip. The development of these plans involved examining the itinerary, learning as much as possible about the places to be visited, and establishing goals to be accomplished during the trip. Chapter III consists of entries from a field journal kept as a record of the team's activities. Finally, Chapter IV includes a brief report from each participant summarizing the extent to which they achieved their planned objectives. Appendixes contain the itinerary and course outlines. (AJL)
