In today’s global society, higher education institutions are charged with preparing students to be world citizens who possess holistic perspectives on diverse international cultures. Many colleges and universities in the United States of America actively seek international partners to offer technology enhanced global networked courses. All members, including faculty, instructional designers, information technology support staff, and administrators, in the partner institutions play essential roles in developing and delivering international networked courses.
The panelists will share the journey and offer faculty preparation and course development models. They will discuss and reflect best practices, barriers and challenges they have learned as they seek international partners, collaborate globally, develop international curricula, team teach with colleagues from diverse culture and linguistic backgrounds, and produce meaningful learning outcomes. The panelists will also facilitate interactive discussion to engage the participants in connecting research, policy, and practice; and in exploring ways to make COIL sustainable at both course level and institutional level. The participants will have the opportunity to conduct hands-on activities, working in teams to develop a global networking module for a course.
