Call for Expressions of Interest: 2021-22 International Virtual Course Collaboration
Global Affairs invites expressions of interest from UC Davis faculty interested in developing an international virtual course collaboration with partners at universities abroad to support the achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
To participate in this initiative, faculty need not design new courses, nor is it necessary to co-teach an entire course with a faculty member from the partner institution. Instead, international virtual course collaboration focuses on developing joint modules, class sessions, or projects with a faculty member from a partner international institution that will benefit students and engage them in global learning. Examples of activities include shared reading assignments and student-led discussion to generate cross-cultural perspectives or joint team-based projects or creative assignments that have the students working in multi-cultural and, often, interdisciplinary groups to address the SDGs.
To learn more about this type of international virtual course collaboration, see:
- Global Classroom from Tecnológico de Monterrey
- Self-guided Introduction to Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) from the SUNY COIL Center
Contact Elizabeth Langridge-Noti (email@example.com), director of faculty engagement in Global Affairs, to begin the matching and training process for creating an international virtual collaboration with:
- Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico, during fall quarter 2021, and/or
- A university partner during the 2021-22 academic year
Deadline: July 31, 2021
