Intentional Intercultural Learning and Assessment
Two Coordinated Workshops for APUAF Presented by Milton Bennett & Lilli Engle
Paris, June 12, 2015

These days, very few exchange or study abroad programs fail to claim "intercultural learning" as a participant outcome. Thanks to a long history of research and workshops on the topic at NAFSA, FORUMEA, IAIE, and other professional organizations (including APUAF), the importance of intercultural learning is now well established. However, there still is wide variation among programs about exactly what "intercultural learning" means, how it should be pursued, and how it could be assessed. These two workshops will explore limitations affecting the definition, implementation, and assessment of international exchange learning goals in general, with particular focus on how to make intercultural learning a more intentional and measurable outcome.

Academic Cooperation Association Conference: English Medium Instruction in Europe

Advisory Board member Lisa Fleury, Vassar Wesleyan Program in Paris, attended the Academic Cooperation Association's Conference on English Medium Instruction in Europe in Brussels: "A rare phenomenon at the turn of the century, English-medium instruction (EMI) has become a systemic feature in some European countries, particularly at the Master level. Even though the growth curve now shows signs of flattening, English-taught programmes have become immensely numerous and popular in the last 15 years. This ACA European Policy Seminar present[ed], amongst other things, the key findings of ACA's latest (2014) Europe-wide surveys of this form of tuition." Lisa has provided documentation, available in the member access section under Academics.

Housing Workshop & General Assembly 2014

The October 2014 General Assembly was great success. Many thanks to Maître Valérie Raynaud for her presentation on La loi de la sécurisation de l'emploi and to the panel participants, Gilles D'Harcourt, Bérangère Allais and Stephane Pico from Generali, Jessica Cotton-Bayet and Marie Martini from Humanis. Their presentations can be found in the member access section of the website under Staff/Employment.

The November 2014 Housing Workshop was also very productive.

Their presentations can also be found in the member access section of the website under Housing.
