Internationalizing the Curriculum: Champlain College and the Global Module Project

Abstract : Champlain College, a leader in both online and international education, uses the Internet to create Global Modules that link the students and faculty at two or three international educational institutions for shared online readings, discussion and teamwork. Students at Champlain have used the Global Modules format to discuss women's issues with students in the U.A.E., terrorism with Jordanian students, globalization with Indian students, the peace movement with Austrian students and the Lebanon crisis with Australian students. This year Champlain will take the unprecedented approach of embedding the Global Modules in its new core curriculum in a course entitled Concepts of Community. This presentation will present a brief overview of the Global Module approach, including the technological and pedagogical implications.
