“The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.” – Proust

As effective educators, we are facilitators of learning in the classroom. Likewise, as group or program leaders on a tour, we also need to help our students make connections, think critically, and reflect on their own thinking. Faye Brenner, the author of Transforming Student Travel: A Resource Guide for Educators, demonstrated how you can help your students develop a host of valuable learning skills through travel.

In this webinar:

  • Explore how educational travel not only introduces students to new landscapes, but also how it encourages young people to be more inquisitive, open-minded, reflective, and principled, and to take risks
  • Share popular student destinations to demonstrate questioning techniques and activities that foster critical thinking on the road
  • Show ways you can create a student-centered, inquiry-based experience on a student tour by working together with the tour operator and professional tour director
