Author Spotlight (Vol. 8): Sergio Ruiz Pérez

🎉 Congratulations to this week’s Author Spotlight, Sergio Ruiz Pérez!

Ruiz Pérez’s short-form article discusses a form of project-based language learning called orbital studies, which offers study abroad instructors a framework for facilitating an immersive experience for their students. After offering a contextualized definition of essential concepts, the author discusses a study carried out in Sevilla, Spain which drew on Orbital Studies. Ruiz Pérez shares details of the study, offers implications and suggestions for practice, and closes with a strong argument about the powerful impact orbital studies and project-based language learning can have on a study abroad and the language learning experience.
