Slide1:  Education Abroad Glossary Chip Peterson, U. Minnesota Lilli Engle, AUCP Lance Kenney, Villanova U. Kim Kreutzer, U. Colorado- Boulder William Nolting, U. Michigan Anthony Ogden, Penn State Slide2:  Session Overview Divided into four parts: Part I: What is the glossary? Part II: If you were writing the glossary: Issues the task force faced Part III: Glossary Jeopardy Game Part IV: Questions & discussion What this session is: Highly interactive session with three objectives. Give you a sense of the process we went through. Point out issues remaining. And have some fun! What the session is not: A walk-through of the glossary. Read it online! Slide3:  Part I: What is the glossary? Origins: Idea generated at Forum meeting during the NAFSA Baltimore conference (three years ago!) Task force appointed fall 2004 Task force process to date: Defined scope of glossary (audience, terms, etc) Identified tentative clusters of definitions Task force members volunteered for particular clusters Clusters changed through mergers, divisions, or redefinitions Grouped clusters gradually into six broad sections Forum has now posted the glossary (draft 16) on its website. Slide4:  Next Steps: Conversion to wiki Online comments/edits will be invited On-going editorial review Forum Board and/or Council reviews draft & adopts it Hard copy published in addition to online version? Issues for future editing: Limited feedback from outside the task force…how will field react? Inconsistency in style, length/detail of definitions, etc. Inconsistency about capturing current usages vs. recommending conventions Part I: What is the glossary? Slide5:  Part II: If you were writing the glossary Objectives: To help you understand the sorts of decisions we have had to make To help us get additional ideas from what you say To have some fun… “If You Were Writing the Glossary” The Molly Ivins Team The Ralph Yarborough Team The John Hightower Team The Barbara Jordan Team Slide6:  Question One Topic: Scope, audience, and format For 3 Points: If you were sitting down to draft an education abroad glossary, What would be its scope (i.e., what sorts of terms would you include?) What would be its limits (i.e., what sorts of terms would you consider to fall outside its scope?) At whom would you aim it? How would you organize it? Time Limit: 3 minutes Slide7:  Question One Here are some of the task force’s decisions: Focus. Education abroad for US college & university students. Primary Audience. Education abroad professionals & faculty, in US & in destination countries, who works with such students. Scope. Includes education abroad broadly defined, not just study abroad. Purposes of Entries. Some entries try to distill predominant usages, others suggest a convention for the field. Which English. Definitions reflect US usages. Degree of Precision. For now, definitions not so precise as would be needed for data gathering, that might come later. Organizational Structure. Clusters of terms grouped into sections. Order of Terms. By topic areas rather than alphabetically, with alphabetical index at end. Slide8:  Question Two Topic: Term for a provider-sponsored study abroad program that has been “adopted” by the home institution For 2 Points: Many institutions “adopt” specific provider-sponsored programs (in their catalog, on their website, etc.). How many difference names can you think of that one institution or another used to describe such programs? Time Limit: 2 minutes Approved program, Recommended program, Endorsed program, Preferred program, Highlighted program, Featured program, Affiliated program, Cosponsored program, (Name of home institution) program Slide9:  Question Two Affiliated (or Cosponsored Program) – A program with which an institution has a special relationship. There is no standard significance for an “affiliated program;” one would need to know each institution’s definition to determine what special privileges these programs would be granted at the institution. Among the privileges that an affiliated program enjoys in one model or another are resident credit, grades counted toward the home institution's GPA, publicity in the college catalog, applicability of institutional financial aid, or even permission to participate. Slide10:  Question Three Topic: Program types For 3 Points: If you were to classify study abroad programs into no fewer than five nor more than ten broad types, what would they be? Cluster IV-E Orientation Program Descriptors Duration Timing Study Abroad Program Types Study Abroad Program Subtypes Work, Internships, Volunteering, Service-Learning Time Limit: 3 minutes Slide11:  Question Three Topic: Program types Here are the six categories in the draft glossary… e. Study Abroad Program Types Integrated University Study Classroom Study Abroad Field Study Program Overseas Campus Study Tour Hybrid (or Mixed) Program Time Limit: 3 minutes Slide12:  Question Four Topic: Ordinary definitions vs. definitions for purposes of data gathering Here are 3 definitions from the glossary on program types: Integrated University Study – A study abroad program type in which the predominant study format is participation in regular courses alongside degree-seeking students from the host university. Classroom Study Abroad Program – A study abroad program type in which the predominant study format consists of classroom-based courses designed for non- native students. May include a variety of subtypes such as language institutes, area studies programs, institutes for foreigners at host-country universities, and faculty- led programs. Field Study Program – A study abroad program type in which field study is a required and pedagogically central component. Slide13:  Question Four Topic: Ordinary definitions vs. definitions for purposes of data gathering For 4 Points: How would you modify these definitions so that each of the three categories can be clearly distinguished from each other for purposes of data collection? (Assume for this purpose that there is no “hybrid” or “mixed” category.) How much field study does a program have to have to be a field study program rather than a classroom study abroad program? If a program combines program-sponsored courses with the opportunity to take courses in a host university, how can those two categories be defined so that anyone looking at a program will clearly know to which of the first two categories above it belongs? Time Limit: 4 minutes Slide14:  Question Four “This cluster is perhaps the most tentative – and potentially most controversial – in the glossary. It attempts to synthesize various program characteristics into a small number of idealized models. Following considerable discussion and modification, such a classification scheme might eventually be employed in data reporting on study abroad participation. Before that could happen, a consensus would need to be reached in the field not only about which categories to include but also on how to define their boundaries concretely enough to minimize ambiguity. This particular cluster, then , is meant to be the opening salvo in a long conversation rather than a standard for the field.” Slide15:  Question Five Topic: The U.S. educational system For 3 Points: One of the 6 broad glossary sections is called Understanding the US Education System. Name some clusters you think would be logical to include in such a section. Time Limit: 3 minutes Slide16:  Question Five Topic: The US educational system Here’s what we came up with… Understanding the US Education System Levels of Education & Types of Institutions Degrees & Educational Levels Credit & Instruction Classes & Courses Academic Calendars Cognition & Skill Development Slide17:  Question Six Topic: Geographic regions The section on geographical terms divides the world into major regions (examples: Europe, North Africa & the Middle East). Each region contains a number of sub-regions that cut across national boundaries. For example, the following are among the Asian sub-regions in the draft glossary: Central Asia Trancaucasus East Asia South Asia Himalayan Kingdoms Southeast Asia Indochina Slide18:  Question Six Topic: Geographic regions For 3 Points: Compile as long a list as you can of such sub-regions for the western hemisphere. Remember, each region must include portions of more than one country, thus something like The South or The Maritime Provinces would be beyond the scope of this section. Write down your answers and hand them in. Team with most legitimate sub-regions wins. Sub-regions not on task force’s list count double. Time Limit: 3 minutes Slide19:  Question Six Topic: Geographic regions America Hispanic America Ibero-America Middle America Central America Mesoamerica The Caribbean Greater Antilles Lesser Antilles South America The Guianas Guiana Andean Countries Northern Andes Central Andes Southern Andes Bolivian Countries Southern Cone Rio De La Plata Patagonia North America Anglo-America Slide20:  Question Seven Topic: Fees For 2 Points: How would you define a study abroad program fee? Time Limit: 2 minutes Program Fee - A fee paid to an organization ( a college, a university, or an independent program provider) to cover specified aspects of a study abroad program. (Although Program Tuition is sometimes used as an alternate term, it is better employed only to refer to the component of a program fee that covers academic and administrative expenses but not such items as housing or health and accident insurance.

Slide31:  What is a peer advisor? Question Slide32:  The anxiety and feelings (of surprise, disorientation, confusion, etc.) felt by an individual coming into contact with an entirely different social environment, such as a different country. It often relates to the temporary inability to assimilate the new culture, causing difficulty in knowing what is appropriate and what is not. Answer Slide33:  What is culture shock or transition shock? Question Slide34:  Anyone who has ever lived abroad before adulthood because of a parent’s occupational choice (with for, example, the diplomatic corps, religious or non-governmental missions, international business) or whose parents were/are abroad independently for career purposes. Those who have spent a significant portion of their childhood outside of their own country belong to a separate “third” culture distinct from that of their home or host countries. Elements from each culture are assimilated into the person’s life experience, without having the sense of belonging or full ownership in any. Answer Slide35:  What is a global nomad (or third-culture kid)? Question Slide36:  The recognition and understanding of the states of mind, including beliefs, desires, and particularly emotions, of others without injecting one’s own. The concept is often characterized as the ability to “put oneself in another’s shoes,” or to identify with the feelings of the other person on that person’s terms. Relies on the ability to set aside temporarily one’s own perception of the world and assume an alternative perspective. Answer Slide37:  What is empathy? Question Slide38:  The natural tendency to look at the world primarily from the perspective of one’s own culture and to evaluate all other groups from that viewpoint. People tend to use their own verbal and non-verbal codes, their own assumptions and rules to evaluate others. Answer Slide39:  What is ethnocentrism? Question Slide40:  A program involving a two-way movement of participants—whether faculty, students, staff, or community members—between institutions or countries. Answer Slide41:  What is an exchange? Question Slide42:  Orientation programming intended to support students with their readjustment back to their home culture and campus. This orientation encourages students to reflect upon what they learned abroad and articulate their experiences to themselves and others so that they might further build their new skills and perspectives. May be built into the in-country program and/or given on the home campus after students’ return. Answer Slide43:  What is re-entry orientation? Question Slide44:  A short study abroad experience that forms an integral part of, or an optional add-on to, a course given on the home campus. Most commonly the study abroad portion of the course takes place during a mid-semester break or after the end of the on-campus term. Typically the study abroad cannot overlap significantly with the dates of the on-campus term because participants are enrolled in other classes as well. Answer Slide45:  What is course embedded study abroad? Question !! Daily Double !! :  !! Daily Double !! How much would you like to wager? Daily Double ! :  An in-country institution whose primary mission is to provide special classes for American students or for a broader range of non-native students. Normally involves permanent staff and office facilities. Centers may be operated independently; may be special units within a host-country university; or may be sponsored by a college or university in another country or by a study abroad provider. They may or may not be accredited. Answer Daily Double ! Slide48:  What is a study abroad center? Daily Double ! Question Slide49:  The term traces its origins to the works of John Dewey, essentially means learning by doing. It encompasses a vast array of approaches to learning outside the classroom, sometimes complementing classroom-based instruction. These may include research, field trips or seminars, field work or observation, as well as immersion in workplace settings such as internships, volunteering, teaching, and paid jobs. Giving structure to the learning experience through means such as observation and reflection is often seen as an essential element. May be curricular (for credit) or co-curricular (not-for-credit). Answer Slide50:  What is experiential education? Question Slide51:  A professional adviser who specializes in education abroad. The adviser works closely with students to explain the general education abroad process, application procedures and the type of programs that are available. Discussion also includes scholarship and financial information, the credit approval process, academic major/minor articulation, pre-departure preparation, and general program requirements. Answer Slide52:  What is an education abroad advisor (or study abroad advisor)? Question Slide53:  Private housing hosted by a local family, which often includes a private bedroom, meals, laundry, etc. Usually provides the greatest immersion in the host language and culture, giving students first-hand knowledge of what family life is like in the host culture and the opportunity to use the language in an informal setting. In most cases, the family welcomes the student like one of the family, getting to know the student and offering a support network to him/her. Answer Slide54:  What is a homestay? Question Slide55:  A federal law that affords parents the right to have access to their children’s education records, the right to seek to have the records amended, and the right to have some control over the disclosure of personally identifiable information from the records. When a student turns 18 years old, or enters a postsecondary institution at any age, the rights under this law transfer from the parents to the student, with some exceptions in practice, such as students claimed by either parent as a dependent for tax purposes. Answer Slide56:  What is the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)? Question Slide57:  Official term used by the US State Department for an announcement that warns US citizens against travel to a specific country. It is the strongest of the three types of travel information issued by the State Department. Note that these come in different degrees of severity, though they are not designated quantitatively, but by language that calls, for example, for all US citizens to defer non-essential travel, or for the voluntary or mandatory evacuation of some or all US staff members (and/or their families) of the US embassy and consulates located in the country. Answer Slide58:  What is a travel warning? Question Slide59:  The 1999 agreement signed by ministers of education from 29 European nations at the University of Bologna to harmonize academic degree and quality standards throughout Europe. One year earlier the foundation for this agreement was established by the education ministers of France, Germany, Italy, and the UK through the so-called Sorbonne Declaration, which called for "harmonizing the architecture" of the European educational system. The process has continued with bi-annual meetings and agreements. Answer Slide60:  What is the Bologna Declaration and process? Question Slide61:  A detailed summary of the content and requirements of an academic course (typically includes lecture or discussion topics, assigned and optional readings, assignments, and evaluation criteria). Answer Slide62:  What is a syllabus? Question Slide63:  A set of higher education institutions, mostly in the South and East of the US, that were originally aimed at, or restricted to, African American students and that tend still to have a predominantly African American student body. Answer Slide64:  What is an Historically Black College or University (HBCU)? Question Slide65:  The academic tradition in US under-graduate education that requires students to not only have a primary course of study, but also to take introductory classes in a variety of different “core” disciplines (social sciences, humanities, natural sciences, fine arts, etc.) in an attempt to foster student learning earmarked by both ‘depth’ and ‘breadth.’ Answer Slide66:  What is general education or liberal education? Question Slide67:  1) The knowledge, skills, and abilities an individual student possesses and can demonstrate upon completion of a learning experience or sequence of learning experiences (e.g., course, degree, education abroad program). In an education abroad context, this may include language acquisition, cross-cultural competence, discipline-specific knowledge, research skills, etc. 2) Advance statements about what students ought to understand or be able to do as a result of a learning experience. Answer Slide68:  What are learning outcomes?

Answer Slide74:  What is Francophone Africa? Question Slide75:  Albania, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia (usually), Greece, Macedonia, Rumania, Serbia & Montenegro, and sometimes Slovenia and/or Turkey’s small European portion. Because the term has tended to have pejorative implications, some people advocate Southeastern Europe as an alternative. Answer Slide76:  What are the Balkans? Question Slide77:  Collective term for New Guinea plus a series of island chains in the western portion of the South Pacific, east of New Guinea and the northern half of Australia, from the Bismarks on the northwest through the Solomons and the New Hebrides to New Caledonia and Fiji. In political terms it includes Fiji, New Caledonia, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu. Answer Slide78:  What is Melanesia?
