Globally Networked Learning (GNL) can provide meaningful, effective learning opportunities for students to explore the intersections of cultures and competencies. Like most innovative pedagogical initiatives, however, it can be daunting to consider how best to develop, facilitate, and assess a seemingly new idea within an existing course plan. The GNL project team at York University has invested over a year of research inspired by, and drawing on, resources from the Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) to determine best practices of GNL pedagogy to support the important pathway from idea through to development, facilitation, and evaluation.
This interactive session will offer participants the opportunity to consider Globally Networked Learning as a pedagogical strategy that can be integrated into, rather than simply added onto, a course syllabus. The session will begin with a discussion of considerations for effective pedagogy, drawing on research and good practice curated by York University’s Teaching Commons. Participants will then be invited to participate in a semi-structured exercise that guides the development of a GNL-based course activity that is built on a foundation of meaningful learning outcomes, co-facilitated by an international partner, supported by an institutional champion, and scaffolded by effective learning activities, assessment strategies, and learning technologies. Participants will leave the session with an actionable outline for incorporating their newly developed strategy into a current or upcoming course.
