Abstract

This paper examines the communicative exchange phase of an instructional design model for the establishment and administration of study abroad programs. The model incorporates several key aspects of Mezirow’s theory of transformative learning and discusses how technology enhanced communication can encourage and/or enhance the transformation process. An explanation of the model guides the practitioner through the entire study abroad process including learner pre-assessment, goal identification, location selection, technology resource assessment, establishment of communication guidelines, communicative exchange, and learner post-assessment.
