Globally Networked Learning
In a nutshell, how Globally Networked Learning works. Two faculty from two different colleges in different parts of the world (say France and Connecticut) work and teach in the same field, say business of fashion, and use similar approaches. They each have a course that they teach normally with strong areas of overlap, say “Design and Marketing.” They and their students will benefit by drawing on their different economies and cultures across countries. They develop the learning aims for the shared course. They work with their campus e-learning staff to prepare a mix of learning situations, i.e., full class video-conferencing, individual tasks, or team projects using social media or a learning management system. Students on each campus enroll in their own campus’ system and pay their home college tuition and fees.
