Globally networked learning (GNL) refers to an approach to research, learning, and teaching that enables students, faculty, and non-academic researchers from different locations around the world to participate in, and collaborate on, knowledge-making processes and concrete research projects. With the aid of various forms of technology – including but not limited to, learning management systems, video conferencing software and hardware, cloud computing and social media – they are brought together in a consortium to collaborate on projects that bring together the diverse perspectives of participants to produce a richer, more nuanced, understanding of the issue(s) at hand. A GNL project might entail or produce cross-cultural discussion on a particular course concept, a joint lecture over multiple time zones, a shared assignment, or a collaborative research project, among other possibilities.
Call for Projects for Summer and Fall 2021: March 31st, 2021*
*Interested faculty can still get in touch with the GNL team for continued supports after this deadline.
