Global Understanding - from Campus SHA to the world

Participating countries:

 30 countries

Participating universities:

Over 60 universities

Project description:

Taught completely in English, Global Understanding involves real-time videoconferencing links with university students from around the world. Students will connect twice a week with the partner universities to discuss diverse topics such as college life, traditions, religion and the meaning of life, stereotypes, and many more. The sessions are student led and the conversation is allowed to flow

Links with a university will last approximately 3 – 4 weeks each and aside from the live video links may include online chatting and collaborative projects. The course is part of the "Global Academic Initiative" of East Carolina University in North Carolina, in which more than 60 universities in 30 countries participate.
