Student As Hero: Reflecting On The Study Abroad Transformation
Abstract: Reflection is a taken-for-granted step in transformational learning. The Hero's Journey framework turns a student reflection of their study abroad trip into a dynamic narration of the experience, with the student a central and active character rather than a participant observer. It walks the actor through decisions and consequences, making it a practical way to interpret and share various transformational experiences. Session participants will craft their own stories while learning to apply the framework.
