Global Classroom Roundtable: Focus on STEM
Thursday, June 17, 2021
9:00 AM-10:00 AM
roundtable, attendees will hear from STEM faculty at Drexel, and one of our
partners at Politecnico di Milano, about their experiences developing virtual
exchange projects into their existing courses and their successes, challenges,
and recommendations for those wishing to develop their own Global Classrooms.
STEM is generally underrepresented in international education, and the hope is
that more faculty will want to engage students in these experiences to prepare
them for academic and professional global collaborations.
or Virtual exchange (also known as Collaborative Online International Learning
(COIL), Globally Networked Learning, or Telecollaboration) extends authentic
opportunities for intercultural and transnational learning to students, as well
as through co-curricular activities. Through co-developed and co-taught
modules, virtual exchange supports the development of 21st-century workforce
skills and provides opportunities for applied learning experiences.
The Drexel Global
Classroom encourages faculty to include these opportunities in their
pre-existing courses. Office of Global Engagement provides support for the
development of these courses. First-time faculty are eligible to receive a $750
professional development stipend for these courses. More information can be
