The Globally Networked Learning (GNL) will be hosting a virtual information session on Tuesday, Feb. 22 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. The session is open to all York faculty members who are interested in innovative pedagogies that combine internationalization and experiential education and co-teaching a course with an international partner.
Session participants will learn how to integrate GNL-enhanced activities in their courses including developing new and/or enhancing existing partnerships through GNL. York GNL faculty course leaders will share their experiences, as well as student learning outcomes and feedback, and will provide information about GNL supports and resources available to York faculty members, including the GNL Award.
GNL refers to an approach to research, learning and teaching that enables students, faculty and non-academic researchers from different locations around the world to participate in, and collaborate on, knowledge-making processes and concrete research projects.
The GNL approach engages faculty and students in collaborative joint lectures, class discussions, assignments and/or research projects through innovative pedagogies and the use of online communication and information technologies. In addition to innovative pedagogical approaches, GNL promotes and facilitates intercultural communication and global learning for both faculties and students.
York University faculty members who embark on a GNL have access to many supports, including York International, the Teaching Commons, University Information Technology and the University Libraries along with resources from the partner university.
To further assist faculty members to co-develop resources for their GNL course and support GNL initiatives, there is also an award of $1,000. The application deadline for GNL courses of the Fall 2022 and Winter 2023 terms is Friday, April 8. Access the Faculty Toolkit for more resources.
