The form of the investigations and reflections can and should be varied: writing (both fiction and non-fiction, prose and poetry), photography, video, and visual art. Students should gather information and impressions in the manner they wish. The nature of these can also be varied, as each student forms a unique perspective.

Your professor and the host institutions are interested in a genuine experience and honest reflection.
