Global Classrooms

Global Classrooms present students with another opportunity to engage with ideas and individuals around the world.

Illinois Global Classrooms is a COIL initiative aimed at supporting students and instructors to structure Collaborative, Online, and International Learning experiences, facilitated by technology, between students at the University of Illinois and students from international partner institutions. In this program, you connect with an international partner who teaches in a similar or complementary discipline to develop a virtual project with concrete goals and deliverables, and you implement it in one of your existing courses. Projects vary in scope and duration, but typically last between six and eight weeks.

In collaboration with the campus-wide study abroad community, and with support from the European Union Center, Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies, Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and the Center for Global Studies, the College of LAS identified Global Classrooms as a priority to extend and expand our global learning reach, as well as to democratize access to global learning. In addition to strengthening faculty partnerships and research, diversifying pedagogical practices, and deepening student learning, Global Classrooms has been shown to help students to see their own discipline from multiple perspectives and to interrogate their assumptions in new ways.
