This Educational Travel program is structured to enable teachers to develop and carry out their own travel study course. Travel becomes both a deeper learning opportunity and an engaging teachable event as they research, view, study and reflect on the locales visited. By using the course assignments as a guide, the experience will expand the teachers' understanding and appreciation of the relevance of the specific site being explored. This approach will enhance the teaching of specific assigned educational standards.

To begin the process, students will register for at least one semester unit. They will send the instructor a tentative travel itinerary and their areas of study interest. The instructor will collaborate with the student and together they will establish any additional units that they may be able to earn available for the planned travel study trip. If additional units are warranted the student will then enroll for the additional units as agreed upon.

Whenever electronic communication is available, students will share their daily adventures with the instructor and possibly with other travelers who are taking or have taken the travel class.

The fee for this course covers only the cost of the course tuition and one official transcript that will be mailed upon successful course completion and grading. All travel expenses and/or admission fees are the responsibility of the student.
