Connect was designed to help students understand their experience as a comprehensive learning process. While most students realize during the Face to Face training that they hadn’t actually considered intercultural challenges as part of their preparation for a study abroad period, they do welcome the possibility of being exposed to an intercultural training. The online support phase serves as a tool to deepen the knowledge acquired during the first Face to Face training and to build the confidence to share their own experiences and views of their host culture and their process of discovery and adaptation through their contributions to the Experience Map. The re-entry / reflection phase while the it is the final phase of the formal training within the project, is also the beginning of the reflection and self assessment process that allows to become mentors and help other students in their learning journey.
