Project Details

Description

Global Classrooms is an innovative teaching appraoch that engages our students with students at one of our partner universities abroad through a range of interactive technologies.

Faculty members from any discipline incorporate a global dimension into their scheduled class and link it to a class of students at an international partner institution.

A Global Classroom is specifically designed to link students who have different cultural and geophysical perspectives and experiences. It supports through:
1. Internationalizing the curriculum
2. Providing different perspectives regarding fields of study
3. Facilitating a cross-cultural experience for students, without having to leave the classroom (let alone their home country)
4. Developing and/or expanding faculty international agendas (research & partnerships)
