BTNY 43120 - Evaluating International Engagement Methods
Credit Hours: 1.00.  Designed for students who have just returned from the Engagement Methods for Int'l Food Security course or have previous experience working with our partners. In order to 1) fully comprehend the impact of the experience and 2) foster true long-term relationships with and service to our partners, it is required to work on our projects when we return. Matt McGregor, Former Exec. Dir. of Timmy Global Health, told us that "it's not really about the trip". It is essential that we accomplish: 1) Closure of trip experiences with partners and contacts - thank you's and complete follow-up; 2) Reflection of Purdue student experiences and personal goals/follow-up actions; 3) Promotion of food insecurity realities and opportunities for support; and 4) Planning, recommendations, and promotion of future service learning courses.
