Michigan State University hosted the first annual "Learning Abroad Conference" on November 2, 2012, co-sponsored by the Office of Study Abroad, the Office for International Students and Scholars, and the Faculty Learning Community on Teaching and Learning Abroad. Now an annual event, the conference features presentations from students returned from international learning experiences and international students currently studying abroad here in East Lansing. The presentations include a variety of formats from poetry to journal entries to music compositions to video, and more. The conference gives voice to the student experience through a variety of creative media so fellow students as well as the greater MSU community can better understand the nature and impacts of student learning abroad.
These workshops were led by programs leaders who shared their thoughts related to reflective practice in education abroad, assessment of student learning, post-program engagement with students, and faculty's motivations for offering education abroad opportunities for students.
