Create a Great Professional and Global Network:
Through a properly designed study tour, faculty members will meet and engage with business leaders, teaching peers, government officials and many students of other cultures. These are great opportunities to create relationships with people with whom follow-on classroom projects, research, and case studies can be developed for future classroom use.
Develop New Classroom Teaching Material:
The nature of a well-designed educational study tour allows faculty members to learn from real-world case studies presented by businesses, governments, nonprofits, and fellow educators. This can go a long way towards developing new classroom case studies and teaching material.
