We are proud to share CLICK Project samples of teaching collaborations supported by Gazelle International.
"Working like an International Engineer: Connecticut and France”, Fall 2019
Students identified a current problem that engineering could solve, eg. how to keep your coffee hot or stop your phone charging cable from breaking. Teams worked on designing and testing a solution to their chosen problem using engineering principles and methods.
• Three all-teams, whole class synchronous meetings to review, critique project progress and final designs
• French students acted as design consultants, supporting the CT students’ design and fabrication efforts
• Design and build solutions to day to day problems
Global Understanding of Antibiotic Resistance in the Soil”, Spring 2019
Hypothesis setup, field sampling, statistical analysis of FR & CT soil for antibiotic resistance and reporting of results.
“(Ex)changing Your Horizon” Spring 2022
Each group received a (fictional) budget of € 2.000 each to organize a study trip to a country with its own currency, not being dollars or euros. They should incorporate travel, accommodation, living, and leisure expenses
“(Re)Programming Cultural Awareness”, Spring 2021 (COVID)
Students will work together in teams in order to develop, design and program a personalized website that can be used as an informative tool/travel guide of a specific country (previously assigned). This website should be developed so it can be helpful for Prepa UDEM students (targeted users) who are planning to embark on a study abroad exchange to that destination. The ultimate goal of the website is to provide the student with information that will help them to prepare themselves beforehand to have a successful immersion into the culture resulting in the prevention of cultural shock, cross cultural communication barriers and misconceptions.
“A Mystery of Shopping” Spring 2022
Students documented local shopping experiences and researched the purpose of measuring customer service experiences. After comparing cross-cultural customer service metrics and researching their team’s assigned brand, student teams developed a mystery shopping survey adapted to each set of cultural norms and consumer behavior.
“CLICK Museum of the Future” Spring 2022
In international teams, learned how to navigate virtual applications, eventually designing and curating virtual museums displaying their visions of the future. Addressing themes like climate change, the pros and cons of technological advancements, and renewable energy solutions, students presented their findings using interactive virtual galleries.
Students produced amazing virtual museum projects addressing the world’s most pressing issues and innovations (Featured in a Gazelle blog post!)
“Communicating in Color: Artists and Engineers”, Fall 2019
Students worked in cross-national teams and created a color-related question that they wanted to explore, ideally with an international focus. Then they designed and carried-out an experiment to answer their question.
