    Study Abroad Syllabus

    Get PDF
    Over the last several years, the Kelley School of Business has made great strides in increasing the numbers of students who have the opportunity to study abroad, but there was no program which directly addressed the topic of Human Resource Management. As the individual who coordinates the Kelley HR major, I took it upon myself to create a new course which could be considered a minor elective for HR majors. I utilized a tour company to facilitate travel, hotels, and tourism visits, but I created the entire academic experience by myself, from classroom content with relevant guest speakers in Indianapolis to company HR department visits throughout Germany and Switzerland. We had several classes on the IUPUI campus before we travelled and then spent a week each in Germany and Switzerland. I created and implemented this syllabus for a study abroad in 2017 for course D355: Special Topics in International Business - Managerial Perspectives on Globalization

    University study abroad and graduates’ employability

    Get PDF
    In recent decades, the number of university students worldwide who have received some part of their education abroad has been rising rapidly. Despite the popularity of international student exchange programs, however, debate continues over what students gain from this experience. A major advantage claimed for study abroad programs is that they can enhance employability by providing graduates with the skills and experience employers look for. These programs also increase the probability that graduates will work abroad, and so may especially benefit students willing to pursue an international career. However, most of the evidence is qualitative and based on small samples

    Language Practice and Study Abroad

    The present study measures the impact that pragmatic intervention has when students are exposed to targeted language practice during a six-week study abroad programme in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The intervention had three goals. First, the researcher drew learners’ attention to language use and context through discussion about pragmatics and exposure to authentic input. Second, the intervention aimed at making students aware of the pragmatic norms of the target culture, including the appropriate use of communication strategies. The third and final goal was to afford the participants opportunities to engage in what DeKeyser (2007) and others argue are five critical aspects of language practice during study abroad: input, output, interaction, guided reflection and targeted feedback. Results indicated that over time all six students increased their use of targetlike request strategies. Journal entries and interviews with the researcher also revealed that the students became more aware of appropriate target-like request behaviour as a result of the language practice. In their journals and interviews, the students also attributed their pragmatic development to three additional sources: interactions with host families and other native speakers, their participation in service encounter exchanges and the targeted feedback given to them by the researcher. The results suggest that exposure to targeted language practice prior to and during study abroad can facilitate pragmatic learning and, in turn, contribute to a more successful study abroad experience
