The unit is a study tour, and as such it is premised on the idea that taking students out of the classroom and putting them in real life situations makes them more motivated, allows them to see the relevance and meaning of public relations in action. The intention, then, is not to replace traditional pedagogy, but to augment it. Much international content revolves around case studies which focus on PR outcomes but does not stress the in-country or national difference in responding to PR situations. This unit seeks to situate students in these scenarios while absorbing national standards of practice and scholarship of PR.
