The EU, Study Abroad and Experiential Learning: Study Abroad Adventures beyond Language Acquisition

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Students do indeed learn by doing. Over the last four years, I have taught EU Politics through a study abroad course that actually takes the students to the EU. Prior to departure, the students spend an entire week study the politics, history, and organization of the EU. The week of lectures, readings and group projects ends with the group's departure for Europe. During their time in Europe, students continue to complete reading assignments, meet in groups and individually with the instructor, and participate in briefings at EU or EU-related offices. Students routinely report that the "being there" function of their learning enhances their ability to inculcate course material; moreover, they just find it to be a lot more intriguing and engaging. Students also report that their on-going dialogues with EU citizens while traveling in Europe further enhance the learning experience. This paper will report on various models for incorporating this in the curriculum and will provide student feedback as to the value of the experience.
