Teaching Beyond Borders

Wednesday, May 9, 4:30-6pm

Peyi and Beth believe that this initiative, which draws on cutting-edge digital technology and critical pedagogies, can serve as a model for innovative, interdisciplinary global collaborative classrooms.  “Beyond borders” teaching strategies are uniquely responsive to the complexities of social and political dynamics and the diversity of cultures. 

Peyi will share her experiences with collaborative teaching  with Dr. Sheriff Folarin at Covenant University in Nigeria, and  Beth will discuss her shared classroom experience co-teaching curriculum with Dr. Nabil Alawi  at An Najah University in the West Bank.  We invite IC faculty to share their own experiences with creating global and collaborative classrooms and ideas about future projects.
