About the Global Learning Partnership
The Global Learning Partnership includes:
The Ohio State University
University of Colorado at Denver
Wheelock College in Boston, Massachusetts
Oranim College in Israel
This project provides faculty and students with the opportunity to interact collaboratively using state-of -the -art technologies such as videoconferencing and an array of multimedia tools to create 'live' classrooms to explore topics of mutual interest to them and their practical classroom work. Because these inquiry topics are taught by experts in a particular subject area, the students have the advantage of working with individuals who can provide insight about subject areas that may not be familiar to the students or are viewed from different cultural perspectives. This interaction and level of rigorous inquiry can provide Global Learning Partnership students with a very unique opportunity to become rigorous, 21st century critical thinkers.
