What are Global Classrooms?

Global Classrooms are courses that engage Drexel students with students at one of our partner universities abroad through a range of interactive technologies.

Faculty members from any discipline who are ready to incorporate a global dimension into their scheduled class and link it to a class of students at an international partner institution are eligible to apply.

For the pilot round, there were six successful Global Classrooms with students collaboratively addressing global challenges with partners in China, India, Israel, and Italy. We have continued to expand this program across disciplines with a variety of our international partnerships.

Successful applicants will receive a stipend and partnership development support from the Office of International Programs. Additionally, resources such as video tutorials and advice from experienced faculty are available to help prepare for a successful Global Classroom.

The hope is that both professors and students will find this experience enriching in many ways, we have many more such proposals in the future, and faculty members continue to offer their established global classrooms yearly. Eventually, all students should have the opportunity to participate in such a class.

Some professors may elect to work with the Study Abroad Office to add a “face-to-face” component to the class – inviting partners to visit Drexel during intersessions or traveling with students to complete a project on a partner campus. We hope to have strategic funding to support such endeavors as well.
