As the first programming event for the new CASNR community of practice around global learning, we’re excited to welcome you to this semester’s “Global For All (mini)Series." This semester, our three sessions are focused on one such inclusive practice in our toolbox of accessible global learning called “collaborative online international learning” or COIL (also referred to as virtual exchange): exploring this methodology and highlighting faculty already implementing it. The following recording showcases the experience of emeritus faculty member Thomas Franti, of BSE, who up until his retirement last year had worked with Dr. Grant Clark in the Bioresource Engineering Department at McGill University, Montreal. This co-taught course introduces students to ecology and engineering design, and allows them to create an ecological engineering design project by collaborating internationally with students from McGill across borders, languages, and cultures. (About the Global Learning Community of Practice: We will convene monthly to learn from each other and our non-UNL colleagues, plus regularly share information around global opportunities for students including lower-cost or free travel opportunities, online collaborations between student groups/classes/etc., the CASNR Global Learning Hub event series, study abroad, and other methods focused on increased access. Feel free to attend any/all events, invite others, check out recordings, share resources or ideas, or suggest yourself or a colleague to be featured.)
