Call for Proposals: Global Classrooms
The International Office is pleased to announce the annual GLOBAL CLASSROOMS CALL FOR PROPOSALS.
Global Classrooms blend, either wholly or in part, courses at UT Austin with courses at international partner universities using online technology to connect students, foster collaboration and facilitate co-teaching. Students receive credit from and pay tuition to their home university.
Courses feature either a significant international online portion extending for the duration of the course or the chance to connect digitally for specific topics or modules. Faculty are welcome to utilize both synchronous and asynchronous modes of connection. Training and support are provided by Teaching & Learning Services in the UT Libraries, the Faculty Innovation Center and Liberal Arts Instructional Technology Services.
The Global Classrooms Curriculum Integration Grant competition will run for a minimum of four years (2017-2020) and award 15 fellowships of $2,500 – $7,500 annually. After their initial year of pilot funding, selected faculty are encouraged to continue their Global Classrooms course for subsequent years, beyond the duration of the grant. Any course in any academic discipline will be considered.
GRANT PROPOSAL DEADLINE: OCTOBER 19, 2018
UT Austin faculty are encouraged to learn more about Global Classrooms curriculum integration grant proposals and submit a proposal for an undergraduate Global Classroom to be taught during the 2019-20 academic year.
