Resources

A starting point for faculty members considering offering a Globally Connected Course is to read the Faculty Guide for Global Course Connections. The next step is for the potential course partners to complete the Global Course Connections Information Table, which will give you insights into logicstical issues that need to be considered.

Global Course Connection faculty are invited to attend a summer workshop during which they learn about technology issues and work with their partner on course planning.

Below you will find handout and assignments used in Globally Connected Courses that will be useful in thinking about your course connection. Feel free to adapt or adopt anything you find here.
