Part of the mandatory 3-part pre-departure intercultural workshop series for students who plan to study abroad during the Spring 2020 semester.
This PDO Workshop is part of the mandatory 3-part pre-departure intercultural workshop series for students who plan to study abroad during the Spring 2020 semester. Students need to attend each of these 3 workshops, but can do so in any order:
- Grappling with Culture
- Living & Learning
- Identity and Relationships
This workshop will be offered on select Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the fall 2019 semester. Students only have to attend each workshop once.
Due to the limited number of spaces available in each workshop, you must sign-up through Totara, by logging in with your Dickinson credentials and registering for the course. If you have any questions, please email email@example.com.
In order to prepare for the workshop, all attendees must review the workshop syllabus and complete an assignment before attending the session. This is accessible on Totara. Your participation in the session will not be considered complete until you have both attended the workshop and completed the assignment.
The narrative of study abroad often focuses on its transformative nature while glossing over the hard work and challenges of crossing cultures. For some students, this is work they are doing every day on our campus and, for others, this will be new. Through the lenses of health, well-being and safety, this session will help students grapple with the unknown and prepare to be uncomfortable.
