Beyond Experience: The Experiential Approach to Cross-cultural Education
Nicholas Brealey Publishing, 1993 - Education - 198 pages
In 1977 the philosophy and educational technique of The Experiment in International Living (World Learning, Inc.) and its academic arm the School for International Training (SIT) were embodied in a book, Beyond Experience. Out of print for some years, this seminal work is now published by Intercultural Press in a second edition. Divided into three sections (Ideas, Activities, and assessment), the book provides: a conceptual framework for experiential cross-culture education, a collection of essays on the practical applications of these ideas along with specific exercises, simulations and other activities, and a guide to assessing the educational impact of the experience.
