Intentional Intercultural Learning and Assessment
Two Coordinated Workshops for APUAF Presented by Milton Bennett & Lilli Engle
Paris, June 12, 2015
These days, very few exchange or study abroad programs fail to claim "intercultural learning" as a participant outcome. Thanks to a long history of research and workshops on the topic at NAFSA, FORUMEA, IAIE, and other professional organizations (including APUAF), the importance of intercultural learning is now well established. However, there still is wide variation among programs about exactly what "intercultural learning" means, how it should be pursued, and how it could be assessed. These two workshops will explore limitations affecting the definition, implementation, and assessment of international exchange learning goals in general, with particular focus on how to make intercultural learning a more intentional and measurable outcome.
