Lessons from a Global Learning Virtual Classroom
Patterson, Lynn M.; Carrillo, Paula Botero; Salinas, Rigoberto Solano
Journal of Studies in International Education, v16 n2 p182-197 May 2012
As institutions of higher education adopt more global learning initiatives to improve global competencies and increase global citizenship among their students, the creative implementation of intercultural exchanges is critical. This article is a reflection on the experiences of implementing a virtual classroom linking students at Kennesaw State University (KSU) and Corporacion Universitaria Minuto de Dios (Uniminuto). The virtual classroom is designed to address global competencies in the areas of knowledge, empathy, acceptance, foreign language ability, and intercultural teamwork. This article outlines the project history, specific class activities, challenges faced in implementation, and recommendations for modifying a future course and for adaptation at other universities.
