Our Global Classroom concept involves a series of themed, synchronous webinars for students and/or teaching faculty. Each webinar features at its core a structured, moderated dialogue with foreign peers – students, educators, journalists, activists, and business people from a partner nation. Invited foreign guests speak powerfully and with authority to selected global themes.
A Global Classroom dialogue may accompany an established course, or it may set up a summer Global Field Experience. It may even stand alone, as an academic or professional opportunity in its own right. In 2017, we will run special webinars dedicated to Media Literacy, Conflict Resolution, Human Rights, Climate Change, and more. Participants will learn to think critically about global trends in lively, online conversations.
