Frequently Asked Questions
What does it mean to be a Global Collaborator?
Simply, it means that you work with people or share accurate descriptions of people across demographic, geographic, political or other divides. Global collaboration happens across the world, with people whom you might have never thought of connecting with, or even people in your own town down the street. “Global” in our context means that collaboration is bringing together diverse participants to work toward a common goal, meaning that specific preparation and skills are key to success. This is a vital skill for educators to possess and students to learn. In today's world, we do not want to "other" different people. Rather, the aim is to work toward common ground, shared goals, and a rich sense of belonging.
Is this an introductory class?
No, this Studio space is for those educators who already have working ideas they wish to flesh out, or previously used and tested lessons, activities, or projects they wish to refine and improve.
