This international module focuses on ways to cross borders and bring-down barriers. The participants are students from  

The University of Maine at Machias; The University of Southern Maine Graduate Counseling program in the USA;  

The Hochschule Mittweida  a university of applied sciences in the district of Mittweida, Saxony, Germany; 

The department of social work and social care;  Bergen University College students and faculty from Health and Social Science, Bergen Norway; and 

Inholland University  of applied sciences and professional education School of Social Work Alkmaar and Haarlem The Netherlands.

Odisee University College in Brussels, Belgium

University of Western England in Bristol, England

The student and faculty participants cross borders in more than one way:

·       By cooperating with participants from other European countries and the United States on a joint project assignment.

·       By receiving support from native speakers when speaking and writing English.

·       By communicating in an international virtual community.

·       By comparing ways to empower and include social-work and counseling users in different countries.

I'm very proud to announce that after hours of hard work, I've completed the complation of videos I filmed in Holland during the Crossing Borders trip, set to the song "Amsterdam" by Imagine Dragons of course! Check it out Amanda Dickey.
