Global Classrooms

“Leveraging Technology to Expand Access to Global Learning”

The Division of Global Engagement is pleased to announce the launch of Global Classrooms, aimed at expanding UC Santa Cruz's global programs into the virtual space. 

This Call for Applications invites all instructional faculty to form an inaugural cohort to develop Global Classrooms -- UCSC courses that incorporate Virtual Exchange (VE), also referred to as Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL), as part of their design, creating opportunities for faculty and students to engage in project-based teaching and learning with counterparts from partnering institutions around the world. Learn more about the COIL course design model.

As the imperative to collaborate across borders becomes ever more evident, Global Engagement continues to seek innovative strategies to keep the campus community connected and engaged with our partner institutions, student peers, and colleagues around the world.

Despite disruptions to international travel, study, and research brought on by COVID-19, Global Engagement is steadfast in our mission To inspire and facilitate global learning and research at UC Santa Cruz.
