Berg assesses study abroad program
June 13, 2014
MacMurray College Associate Professor of Philosophy and Religion Eric Berg spent a week in the Netherlands earlier this month on a travel grant from Central College in Pella, IA. He was there to visit and evaluate Central College’s study abroad site in Leiden, Netherlands.
MacMurray has an agreement with Central College that gives our students access to that school’s study abroad sites, and Dr. Berg has recommended the program for students who wish to study a semester or a year overseas. See more about Central College’s study abroad opportunities.
While in Leiden, he got a tour of the town and of the Leiden facility by the director, and he met with staff, faculty and students about curriculum development, Gen Ed, assessment and had wide-ranging discussions of other academic and study abroad topics. He will now write an evaluation report for Central College of the facility.
