The project focused on the learning opportunities for Australian students inherent in the three different phases in the study abroad and exchange experience, namely pre-departure, in-country and re-entry. The project team sought to generate learning outcomes for the exchange process and to support the attainment of these outcomes through a wide range of OER, including lectures, workshops, videos, readings, student materials, and lesson plans. The learning materials were designed with Australian students in mind, but could be adapted for presentation on a wide range of campuses. The team especially sought to integrate student reflection on their learning experiences, including their photography and blogging, into refining project goals and producing appropriate teaching and learning materials.
