Poster from the Reggio Emilia Student-Faculty Study Tour, February, 2005.


Faculty-Student Study Tour in Reggio Emilia, Italy. The Italians wanted to try out a short study tour oriented to college students accompanied by faculty. Julie Jones Branch was UNL coordinator. The study tour was an opportunity for international dialogue on the rights and potentials of children and adults. It was a chance to reflect on the learning process in cultural context. Over 50 people attended. Nine universities or colleges sent delegations, and 10 people (5 faculty, 5 students) came from UNL.
