We are delighted to provide study abroad coordinators with creative tools to support their students in growing intercultural skills before and after their Morocco Exchange adventures. Following resources can be easily adapted to your program’s specific needs.
After the Morocco Exchange program I feel that in order to truly understand any culture one must experience it first hand.Katie Kollar, Student, New York University
Supporting study abroad objectives
Our intercultural resources are carefully crafted to support study abroad coordinators in following efforts:
- To spark students’ interest to deepen their intercultural skills.
- To create intercultural orientations and training sessions.
- To integrate their insights and learnings in Morocco.
- To communicate the powerful impact of international experiences to administrators, faculty and staff in the US.
Resources that engage students
Following resources are designed to engage students personally, emotionally and intellectually.
Activities before the Morocco Exchange program
Short videos such as Why Explore Diversity? below, the film trailer of our intercultural feature film Crossing Borders and creative resources such as our Quote Cards help students to get a glimpse of the potential life changing impact of intercultural experiences.
Short activities such as On Stereotypes provide students with an opportunity to grow awareness around preconceptions prior to traveling.
Activities after the Morocco Exchange program
The Study Abroad Toolkit, which we developed with the SIT Graduate Institute, provides you with the practical tools to create intercultural orientations and training sessions that you can build around the Morocco Exchange program.
Short videos such as On Differences of Communication Styles below, help students to integrate their intercultural experiences and insights in Morocco.
Our award-winning feature films like Crossing Borders support you to create social events in which students share their intercultural insights and travel experiences.
Communicating about program impact
The key learning areas of these intercultural resources are increasingly important for undergraduate curricula and enhance skills such as critical thinking, cross-cultural openness, social awareness, welcoming diverse perspectives, intercultural empathy, enhanced civic engagement, and other. Our pages like Campus Internationalization Resources can inspire, challenge and support your administration to include intercultural events and sessions into curricular on campus and in doing so naturally increase student interest for study abroad.
Program sponsors need not be expert practitioners in intercultural learning, rather, the CBE tools provide the necessary framework and resources to implement a thorough, reflective learning experience.Bethany Keller, Multicultural Center and International Student Affairs, Webster University, MO
Short Term Travel Programs
We are celebrating the fact, that since 2004, we organised well over 650 successful and safe immersion programs and more than 10,000 university students had personal, emotional and impactful experiences on our Morocco Exchange. We would be delighted to apply our years of experience in creating a custom tailored two or three week program for your institution.
