Term 1

Explore Workshop Header.png

Global educators explore CLICK goals-based pedagogy, discovering how collaborative and cross-cultural teaching can work for them and potential partners in the cohort.

Connect Workshop Header.png

Educators match with a teaching partner in the cohort using speed dating after exploring partner personal and professional compatibility and mutual CLICK learning goals.

Design Workshop Header.png

Using our proven CLICK backward design approach, teaching partners design and develop their collaborative team projects "ready to run". Questions and in-session exchanges within the cohort enrich all the final designs.

Wrap-Around Support (1080 × 400 px).png

From the conclusion of the Design Workshop in early December, right through the Fall semester, our CLICK coaches continue working with the teaching partners with wrap-around support to troubleshoot issues and maximize the success of your virtual exchange experience for both faculty and students.

Term 2

Assessment & Outcomes (1080 × 400 px).png

With our student pre- and post-surveys, teaching partners can see their student outcomes from the CLICK project in a larger context. For advocacy to continue and grow your CLICK/VE programs, you have both cross-project results along with anonymous assessment insights from teaching partners' post-surveys.

Recognition & Certificates.png

It's important to recognize the accomplishments of the students and educators in the CLICK/VE projects! We provide certificates of completion for the CLICK projects as they end over the Spring24 semester. We also provide the faculty a completion certificate at the end of the training in Fall23.
