dc.description.abstractGlobal economy has fundamentally changed the nature of business as well as the mission of higher education. Professional academic programmes, such as textiles and apparel, are ultimately responsible for preparing students to be industry-ready and, thus, various curricula have been developed to address this new need of the industry (Fair et al. Clothing and Textiles Research Journal 1990;8(2):29-37). Particularly, experiential learning has shown to be effective at student learning; international experience learning has become popular in the education literature. While most previous research has focused on the process and outcomes of new curricula, the study analysed students' journals from a short-term study abroad curriculum to capture how students grasp, conceptualise, reflect on and experiment with new experiences under an experiential learning theory framework (Kolb, Experiential learning: experience as the source of learning and development; 1984). Eight themes emerged; two from each of the four learning modes. The findings are discussed and the study is concluded with contributions, implications and future research opportunities.eng
