Leveraging Digital Engagement: Health, Safety, and Studying Abroad

Session Host/Speaker(s)

What’s on the mind of a UC student who has been accepted into an international study abroad program? Here’s a hint: it’s probably not health or safety. Yet preventable health and safety issues can significantly disrupt students’ study abroad experiences. How can we engage, educate, and empower students to make proactive decisions about a set of topics that often just don’t seem relevant prior to departure – and do it remotely? Join UC Education Abroad Program staff Caroline Kapp (Instructional Designer/IT) and Kate de Blanc (Analyst/International Health, Safety and Emergency Response) as they address this challenge and others in a journey through the tools, technologies, and collaborative teamwork involved in developing the new online UCEAP Health and Safety course.
