A GLT faculty advisor works closely with students to prepare them for their semester overseas. This assistance might include helping students decide on a destination and prospective service placements, host families, and research topics. While the student is in the field, advisors serve as “professors-of-record” for each of the courses.
GLT faculty advisors are responsible for:
- Familiarizing themselves with the students’ learning contracts.
- Maintaining regular contact with students while they are in the field.
- Conducting a debriefing meeting with each student upon their return to campus.
- Reviewing and grading the completed course assignments.
