  • Thursday 28 Sept
  • Poster area, Level 1, Rotterdam Ahoy

Duty of care might mean different things in different countries based on laws and regulations, just like institutional definitions vary regarding responsibility for the learning outcomes and safety of outgoing students. This poster looks at who is responsible for travel security, personal safety and learning outcomes. What are the goals when preparing students for their time abroad? Do these clash or complement each other? And what does this mean when institutions prepare students to go abroad?
