Abstract

Students can learn a great deal from international experiences. Although one can learn about another culture from books and discussions, immersing oneself in a culture tends to have a greater impact on both intended and incidental learning. The authors describe the lessons learned and student outcomes during a faculty-led 5-week immersion trip to China.
