Starting from 001: Leveraging Digital Technology to Build Global Education at Community Colleges
When resources are small and barriers are large, we can use technology to leverage campus resources and increase access to global education. Faculty and staff members from community colleges will discuss how they have used digital tools to create and build international programs, increasing access to study abroad through short-term faculty-led programs, domestic study-away programs, hybrid programs, and service learning. We will also discuss our work to internationalize our campuses with events, faculty training, and professional development. You’ll hear perspectives from international education specialists and college faculty members at different stages of development, as we focus on creative program development, advocacy, and leadership in community college settings.
