Global Village Living-Learning Center | Study Abroad: When You Return
X311 | 14341 | John Galuska


Obtain permission to register from the Office of Overseas Study
(812) 855-7003.  This first 8-week course provides students
returning from overseas study with practical advice on how their
international experiences can be utilized for future educational and
professional pursuits. Students will engage in structured
discussions regarding their overseas accomplishments as well as the
knowledge and skills they acquired while abroad. The class will
focus on the completion of an individualized "overseas studies
portfolio poster" that enables students to do two things: process
the emotional, experiential, and academic dimensions of the program
they participated in; and compile and create a portfolio document
that can be used to support ongoing educational and professional
pursuits.  The ways in which study abroad experiences can be
integrated within life at IU will also be explored. Charting A
Hero's Journey (2000) will be used as the primary text for the
course. This course meets in the Global Village LLC in Foster-Martin
