Study Abroad Pre-departure Orientation Streamlined for Faculty-led Programs

The Study Abroad office has developed content, with input from the Comprehensive Internationalization Committee (CIC), and worked with Faculty Instructional Technology Services (FITS)‚Äč, to create an online pre-departure orientation, which was added to D2L. The new orientation module launched this fall 2016 and was piloted with students participating in the December 2016 faculty-led study abroad programs.

We have had a high rate of participation and the student feedback has been positive. This improvement will help DePaul increase consistency of communication, accessibility for students, and will better support faculty in preparing their students to study abroad.
