2020-2021 Showcase


At a Virtual International Classroom Partnering Grant Showcase in May 2021,  several 2020-2021 grantees presented their diverse projects, shared best practices for partnering with a colleague abroad, and reflected on student takeaways. It provided an opportunity for attendees to learn more about creative co-teaching and global engagement initiatives supported by the International Classroom Partnering grant during the COVID-19 period and beyond. This event was co-organized by the Northwestern Searle Center for Advancing Learning & Teaching.
