How To Submit A Global Course Connection
Have an idea for globally connecting your course? come see me! I can walk you through the following steps -
- List your course: To express interest in finding a course partner for your 2018-19 course, please provide a course description by completing the Course Description Google Form. Your course will appear on the course listing page, where you can find descriptions of other courses that are looking for a match.
- Find a course partner: Visit the course listing page to look for a match for your course. Remember, the two courses do not need to be the same; they need to overlap in ways that introducing connections adds an international dimension that gives value to both courses. When you find a course that looks promising as a match for your course, contact the instructor to discuss the possibilities for connecting your courses.
- Submit a Global Course Connection Proposal: Once you have identified a course partner, together you complete a Global Course Connection proposal and the Global Course Connections Information Table. Send the proposal and table to Simon Gray.
- Attend the summer workshop: Faculty members whose Global Course Connections proposal has been accepted are eligible to attend the summer Global Course Connection workshop to be held on the campus of American University in Bulgaria (Blagoevgrad, Bulgaria) June 29-July 1, 2019. Attending the workshop is not a requirement, but is highly recommended. Since space is limited, preference will be given to instructors who have not previously taught a Globally Connected Courses. Only course partners will be invited to the workshop; individual faculty members (e.g., half a course pair) cannot attend.
- Offer the course: Instructors who submit the proposal and complete a Globally Connected Course will receive a $250 stipend at the end of the term once they have completed a course experience survey.
