Adult Learning, 2010 cohort
I have been fortunate to have traveled to over 15 foreign countries– as a tourist, as a volunteer, and as a student and/or instructor. My experiences in other cultures have been informative for my life. I’m interested in how the stories people tell relate to the areas of adult learning and development, reflection, reflective writing, and the development of intercultural sensitivity. My dissertation question is: How do adults make meaning of living and teaching in a foreign country?
