Reentry: Creating Opportunities for Reflection, Growth, and Applications after Study Abroad
Thursday May 11, 2017, 4:00 – 5:00 pm Eastern time
Presenter: Bruce La Brack
This is Webinar #4 in:
Intercultural Competence Development through Education Abroad: Key Concepts, Practical Applications
(A series of four webinars on intercultural learning through education abroad, Spring Semester 2017)
In the past decade discussions on the topic of Reentry after study abroad have grown exponentially among study abroad professionals. However, even though there is widespread consensus that (1) the return home can have major impacts on students and that (2) reentry can be a time of additional intellectual and intercultural growth, reentry courses and activities have not expanded as significantly as one might expect. Bruce La Brack, a recognized expert and author on the reentry process, will review why reentry can be an extraordinary opportunity for additional student learning and insights, and offer suggestions about how faculty can involve them in reentry activities.
About the presenter:
Dr. Bruce La Brack, Professor Emeritus, School of International Studies, University of the Pacific, Stockton, California, an anthropologist by training, created their innovative and integrated study abroad training program for orientation and reentry to support international educational exchange. These courses are the oldest, continuous, cross-cultural orientation courses in America, and include the first required, credit-bearing reentry courses in the US. Bruce is the primary author and editor of “What’s Up With Culture?” (http://www2.pacific.edu/sis/culture/), a free, self-guided, self-paced, and self-assessed Internet resource for preparing U.S. American study abroad students. For over two decades, Bruce served as a senior faculty member at the Summer Institute for Intercultural Communication, Portland, Oregon. In 2012, he was presented the Teaching, Learning and Scholarship Award for Innovative Research and Scholarship in Internationalization by NAFSA. His numerous publications include two recent chapters in Student Learning Abroad (2012) and another in International Higher Education’s 'Scholar-Practitioners': Bridging 'Research' and 'Practice' (2016).
