Webinar Topic: Globally Connected Teaching and Learning
Have you heard of virtual exchange? Collaborative Online International Learning? Online Intercultural Exchange? All of these (and more) are variations on an evolving pedagogy that takes advantage of robust, reliable, and ever-more-ubiquitous technologies to connect students from disparate cultures for collaborative learning experiences. Our panelists represent a wide range of practice and implementation of Globally Connected Teaching and Learning (GTCL), from turnkey operations with proprietary platforms to do-it-yourself, grassroots, faculty-developed projects. We invite you to join us to hear about the many ways GCTL is bringing students and youth together across cultures.
