International Friday: Collaborative Online Learning
During the first mod of the spring 2021 semester, Gabriela Cerghedean and Robin Zebrowski took up an invitation from the Universidad San Francisco de Quito (USFQ), Ecuador, to partner with a USFQ faculty member in teaching one of their courses. USFQ had shared a list of potential faculty partners and courses. Both leapt at the opportunity, in order to give students in SPAN 105, Elementary Spanish II, and COGS 260, Cyborg Brains & Hybrid Minds, a chance to learn with students located in another country.
Professor Beatrice McKenzie’s description of Professor Kate Johnston’s course on “Sickness, Health and Healing in Early America” is featured in a new publication on recruiting students to the Humanities.
With the spring semester delayed, Beloit created a robust two-week program of workshops, panels, and networking that engaged students in planning for their futures. This wildly successful event could not have happened without alumni participation.
