Preparing Students for Intercultural Experience

March 2016

The global intensives are available only to students studying in Melbourne. However, there is an opportunity for our students based in Vietnam, Singapore, China and Spain to participate in these tours. In the past these students have been denied this opportunity because of difficulties associated with pre-departure and post-tour workshops, conducted face-to-face in Melbourne.

This pattern identifies the use of a variety of technologies that can be introduced to what is currently a series of face-to-face workshops for global intensive programs. By utilising these technologies, international students can participate in pre-departure and post-tour workshops focusing on preparing students for their intercultural experience abroad.
