Hopkins and San Ignacio, Belize
May 13 – 27, 2019
Belize is a culturally diverse and mixed race country with one foot in Latin America and the other in the Caribbean. Students will be fully immersed in the culture through immersive learning activities that will highlight textbook material developmental theories into the diverse Belizean context. We will experience San Ignacio and the Mayan ruins, the University of Belize, an Archaeological Reserve, the Belize Zoo, a large Mennonite community, snorkeling, and many other Belizean activities related to change. Students will be able to list and apply principles of planned change, identify methods of change in contexts, influence the introduction, adoption, and diffusion of technological strategies, describe ways of predicting and minimizing undesirable consequences of change, and enhance communications skills for change facilitation.
