CGB announces a grant competition to support teaching innovations in global learning for the online environment. Since COVID-19 has created restrictions on global travel, it becomes important for Maryland Smith to find new ways to expose students to the world and contribute to their development as future global business leaders.
In the absence of study abroad this year, the transition to online learning creates new opportunities for global learning. It makes it possible to connect people, students, and classrooms in different parts of the world. Such connections hold great potential for enriching the classroom experience here at the Smith School. It also creates new opportunities to bring in new sources that would be more difficult to schedule in a regular, in-person course. This initiative seeks to support and encourage teaching innovations in global learning that leverage now ubiquitous communication technologies to enrich student experiences. The grant can be used to support any teaching activity that significantly enhances global learning, including:
- Teaching collaborations between the Smith School and educational institutions located abroad;
- Collaboration for student projects between the Smith School and organizations or companies with operations or headquarters abroad;
- Entirely campus-based global learning experiences for Smith School students (such as simulations, cultural intelligence exercises, etc.).
Applications for fall 2021 courses are due by August 15.
