I went to school in Sydney, Australia where we had a student exchange. A student (it was probably a couple rather than just one) from another school and country would swap with a student from our school. I imagine this is done throughout Australia and throughout the world but as far as I know it stops after high school. Why?
I didn't take part but I imagine it to be richly rewarding, experiencing a different cultural, a different school, different people, different foods, I could go on.
Can you imagine the possibilities if this continued in the workplace? If you could take your own personal knowledge and experience as well as your organisation's and share it? And at the same time learn from other people and an organisation?
Just a random thought that was going through my head.
