Learn the principles and practice of designing and delivering effective study abroad programs with an intercultural emphasis while studying abroad at Kent State University’s historic campus in Florence, Italy. Participants in this workshop will observe and interact with undergraduates attending the summer school program. In addition, you will study the principles of developing effective study abroad experiences; meet with university program officials, faculty, facility support staff, as well as private third-party providers of study abroad, community and onsite support services such as legal advisors, health professionals and housing offices. Ample time will be spent visiting sites of historical and cultural significance in Florence. A weekend trip to Rome will include meetings with American university programs operating in Italy. A day of independent program-related travel in Italy is also built into this program.
