Overcoming Barriers to Study Abroad for Better Engagement of Indigenous Students: An Indigenous Based Approach to Data Collection and Design

Laurier’s Indigenous Initiatives office with support from Laurier International, set out to better understand Indigenous students’ learning needs and obstacles related to international education. By gathering knowledge about the student experience and needs and wants in a culturally appropriate way, the project generated evidence-based insights that will inform the design of learning abroad programs so they meet students’ ways of learning and requirements for a safe and healthy experience. The project has three stages: data collection; program design development; and communications and promotions planning.
