Ten-day workshops and field trips had a key role in the partnership between a university of applied sciences in East Germany and a small private liberal arts college in North Carolina. This case study evaluates activities and programs from the involved faculty´s perspective. The authors look at the underlying institutional process, they discuss organization and content of the programs, and reflect the learning experiences of the participating students. Conclusions are drawn for a further program development and with regard to internationalization strategies.
