This campus’s Japanese program offers a course intended to enhance study abroad experiences, and minimize culture shock at departure and reentry, by providing structured tools and guidance before students depart. Modeled on the UT Austin LESCANT photo project, this course takes advantage of a student's typical inclination to take photos of their experiences and requires students to use selected images to document their experiences in a digital portfolio during their time abroad. The course uses ‘free’ resources, such as Flickr.com, GoogleSites and Weebly.com to post that documentation. After return, faculty members encourage students to integrate that documentation into their senior year electronic graduation portfolios. This presentation will highlight the tools, process and structures implemented to encourage student participation, and coordinate efforts for students across multiple study abroad destination campuses.
