It has also highlighted the need for, and the feasibility of, global learning and connection. Teams of students from UMD and UTE will carry out tasks appropriate to a business environment (e.g., a formal oral presentation, or an international negotiation) as well as academic tasks that explore culture, joint ventures, marketing, and negotiation in Latin America. They will provide resources to contextualize. After an initial exercise on the qualities of transformational leaders, the teams will then engage in a series of virtual simulations that place them in real-life management situations that require them to make critical decisions while challenging ingrained assumptions. The overall aim of the programme is to raise the profile and quality of development education provision in England. 564 0 obj <>stream Through the use of digital technologies and on-going virtual interactions, students from both universities will become acquainted with one another and with the critical social issues regarding need, justice and ethics related to the information age. Each DEC promotes and supports best practice in global learning through CPD training, whole-school initiatives, advice and access to resources for sale and for loan. Students will collaborate in international teams as they discuss these issues and then work to create proposed laws in small groups, using cross-cultural communication and project management. Around 2500 schools are currently benefiting from the free school-led training, guidance, resources, local school network support and £500 of funded CPD provided by the Global Learning Programme. Students will apply critical thinking about how social injustices create preventable health disparities, unequal social determinants, poor environmental exposures and diseases to undermine the achievement of SDGs particularly among vulnerable populations in different countries. High-quality projects will be revised and submitted to conferences in the field of human-computer interaction so that the students can communicate their design ideas with potential academic/industrial partners who are interested in turning the prototypes into real technologies.

It implies that we need to have: Throughout the course, students will work in groups to propose high-performance renovation design options that improve the existing building energy efficiency and reduce environmental impact. UMD-UTE teams will also participate in a simulated negotiation to create a new joint venture. The Maryland students who participate in the mid-semester week abroad would be responsible for reporting back (via in-class presentations and blogs) to the rest of the class. In order to increase digital interaction with partner universities across the globe, the Global Classrooms Initiative (GCI) provides funding to create project-based courses. Dr. Stephen Nkansah-Amankra, Department of Behavioral and Community Health, School of Public Health--, Global Health and Social Justice: Achieving UN Sustainable Development Goals in low income countries, Clinical Assistant Professor, Higher Education, Student Affairs, International Education Policy (HESI) Program, Title of Proposed Course: The College Student and Student Personnel Services in a Global Context, Partner Institution: University of Cape Coast, Ghana. (3) A new dataset that will be provided for scientific use. The class will consist of undergraduate students from the University of Maryland (UMD) and Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) and will be co-taught by instructors from both institutions. "This opportunity allows students to investigate meaning in spoken or written language, understand different cultures, expand their knowledge in other disciplines, and build a global community inside the safe, virtual classroom.". This program takes a class already being taught by an IU faculty member and pairs it with a complementary parallel course taught at a foreign partner university. By visual communication multiple times a week to their cross-continental peers who may have limited knowledge about US entrepreneurial districts, students will learn how to effectively get their points through. h��S�kA}3٭��5m�F�P1Ⱥ� �DQ)=(zh�JCk (�F��V!b=x@%ॴW�5���R��(�Er�C�~�9���7o���o�y3 _�E֏0�G�X�}B�TX�����IJH�+Ũa,N�5ݏPx�e5b�VL3S�i�����`qm�O�+�w�.

This project will transform a course previously taught under a field school format in Brazil, using video and audio conferencing technology to allow UMD students who are not able to travel to collaborate with peers at two universities - Universidade do Estado do Amazoas (UEA) and Universidade de Brasilia (UnB) - and with indigenous peoples of the Amazon. The instructors will introduce basic principles of project management for Digital Humanities projects and invite groups to write group “charters” to outline shared values and set working practices.

The course reinforces this by applying a social determinants of health framework to assess priority areas of human needs for necessary action across the 17 SDGs. All course participants will interact, communicate, view and discuss presentations, and engage with learning resources while working in groups, all in an online setting. Students will discuss films about migration and will be encouraged to consider spring break participation in a UWI (location, Jamaica) focus on migration as explored in Caribbean film. These exciting courses aim to provide our students with international experiences that mirror the work they will encounter throughout their lives: cross-cultural, project-based and virtual.
