SEVILLE IBC SEMESTER CLOSURE

The semester´s end is always a bittersweet time for students as it means saying goodbye to their Spanish families, to their friends…and to Sevilla.  Students prepared for the return home (and the very likely Reverse Culture Shock that they will experience) via a Reentry Session held at the CIEE Study Center.  During the workshop, students reflected not only on how the experience impacted them personally but also what the experience could mean for them professionally.  As such, students worked in pairs and discussed ways to share their growth and learning in a professional and ‘marketable’ manner in their resumes and during a job interview.

It has been rewarding to observe the intercultural learning and growth of the students enrolled in the CIEE Intercultural Communication and Leadership course this semester. The learning objectives of the course are for students to increase their cultural self-awareness, develop a deeper understanding of the field of intercultural communication, increase their ability to recognize and bridge cultural gaps as well as develop an intercultural leadership practice. 

Students' intercultural growth and knowledge were highlighted in the final class project: a digital story. Students highlighted how the experience abroad helped them develop their intercultural competence and contributed to their intercultural learning. I invite you to view CIEE Seville IBC student Chan Hwang´s Digital Story.
