Welcome to a new kind of pre-departure programming, based on the ideas of Bauhaus artist Johannes Itten and hitherto untapped by international educators. This poster presentation proposes a conceptual framework, accompanied by a practical implementation method, for how universities might prepare their students for international education by opening their minds holistically for opportunity and serendipity. Let’s not leave the value of the international experience predominantly to retrospection.
