Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Travel abroad has become a standard feature of global citizenship and many seek help in making sure their travel experiences are fulfilling. University based tours and travel programs are among the most popular for the educated sojourner. This book is aimed at students, professors, and study abroad professionals, but anyone who wants help in preparing for informed and culturally sensitive travel will benefit from its extensive resources. Both a primer for a holistic experience abroad and a practical guide to issues that arise in any travel setting, The Global Classroom is an essential travel companion. It explores the philosophy behind overseas travel, the potential value of the experience, practical preparation for study abroad, selecting the right program, actively engaging in foreign educational settings, reorientation challenges, and exploring pathways for integrating the experience into careers as engaged global citizens. The guide concludes with an appendix containing valuable resources for easy use by all.

Book News Annotation:

Lantis and DuPlaga (political science and off-campus studies, College of Wooster) help students, faculty, and study abroad professionals understand the study abroad experience within an academic context and how to get the most of a program as part of a holistic educational plan. Connecting each phase of study to academic objectives, they address reasons to study abroad, choosing a program, and preparation and active engagement in foreign communities and cultures, as well as health and safety issues, reorientation, and integrating experiences into education.
