Full Session Description (one paragraph minimum):
There are a number of reasons that schools should have an introductory Global Project-Based Learning class in the online, F2F, and blended learning environments. One of the most important reasons is that it teaches critical thinking skills and cultural awareness to students. It is an exciting way for students to encounter these high level-thinking and interpersonal skills that should be a part of a rich interactive online program that teaches real-world learning experiences. This session will explain how to incorporate a Global PBL class as a part of a schools teaching curriculum that gives teachers the opportunity to challenge students to learn skills necessary to do Global PBL in their general courses.
