Student Learning Outcomes
Georgia Southern University Road Scholar utilizes a required, national Road-Scholar-standardized, web-based evaluation system that is offered to all program participants; therefore, the Georgia Southern Road Scholar office does not have the opportunity to individualize its learning outcomes. Respondents have a detailed selection of criteria that they rate based on their personal experiences and opinions. The Georgia Southern Road Scholar offices endeavors to achieve the following objectives:
- Increase participants’ knowledge of Savannah’s unique, extensive history as well as enhance their understanding of how the city’s past has sculpted its present identity.
- Enable participants to gain an appreciation for Savannah’s rich, diverse culture by exposing them to the area’s people, music, cuisine, art, and architecture.
- Ensure that participants are satisfied with all staff involved in the program, the overall program content (educational content, interesting material, variety, etc.) and overall value of the program, as well as the quality of the accommodations, meeting space, materials, transportation, and meals included with the program.
