OCS Winter Break Trips offer an attractive pedagogical model that allow for learning to evolve through problem-posing and on-site exploration to post program analysis and reflection. As such, they promote stronger ties to on-campus curriculum and allow for a longer period over which to study a topic (fall course + 2-week December trip + winter course). The presentations will focus on three aspects of this OCS program model: 1) Rationale, 2) Combining Theory and Practice, and 3) Experiencing Place.
