Re: Call for Proposals — Global Classrooms (PDAD&C #10)

In alignment with the university’s commitment to providing all students with access to a globally relevant education through a variety of pathways, funding is available to support the development of Global Classrooms through a second call for proposals,

Global Classrooms offer an accessible way to internationalize teaching and learning experiences by combining global and cross-cultural collaborations with technology. Additionally, they enable faculty and instructors to work closely with peers abroad. GCs benefit students and organizations in participating regions by offering a cost-effective complement to student mobility, as well as creating pathways to international exchange and study abroad. The goal is to leverage existing technology and strengths within the Global Classroom collaboration. 

The funding initiative will support costs identified by faculty to develop low-, medium- and high-touch Global Classrooms. Funding of up to $10,000 is available, depending on the nature of the Global Classroom proposed.  

Applicants are encouraged to work with local campus teams in developing their proposal. These teams can also help address questions about/connect applicants with IT, teaching support or other resources as needed. To discuss your application in advance, please contact for St. George; for UTM; and for UTSC. Your query will be directed to the appropriate person.
