This session will address the challenges and opportunities of developing short-term study abroad courses. In addition, this tutorial will provide lessons learned from integrating technology assignments into the study abroad experience. Collaboration across borders will be important in the future. Developing these skills first hand will prepare students for the workplace of the 21st century. There are two innovations to be addressed: 1. Developing a short –term study abroad course and 2. Integrating technology (social networking) into these classes. The workshop is based on first-hand experience developing short –term study abroad courses for China, India, and the Middle East. These courses were implemented during 2008-2009 time frames.
