McDonough Worldwide Blogging Program


McDonough Worldwide Blogging

As communications technology expands along with the number of students interested in studying abroad, the McDonough Center offers the McDonough Worldwide Blogging Program for the leadership students. During their junior year, many McDonough Scholars choose to study abroad as part of the experiential requirement for the major in International Leadership Studies and the minor in Leadership Studies. While abroad, they participate in this program, which encourages leadership students to reflect on their study-abroad experiences through blogging.

For students who are studying abroad in the spring semester, blogging also becomes an opportunity to exchange ideas with students taking sophomore-level LEAD 203 (Global Leadership). LEAD 203 students are required to follow at least one of the blogs and write comments during the spring semester. Through their study-abroad experiences, McDonough Scholars are able to expand the LEAD 203 students’ global perspective while developing their own critical thinking skills.
