Track Session 3, 2:00 PM
Global Education - Global Collaboration to Fit Your Needs
Presenter: Pernille Ripp
We all seem to discuss the need for global collaboration and get excited when others do it, but how do we bring this into our own environments? Global collaboration isn't meant to make more work for you, but instead meant to engage students and staff in a more authentic manner in already pre-existing learning. Come to this workshop and find ways to fit global learning and global connections into what you are already doing, without the need to be 1to1 or have crazy amounts of technology.
