To include an intercultural and global dimension to the course content, through meaningful exchanges between teachers and students in different countries.
To foster experiential intercultural learning and the formation of global citizenship competencies in the classroom.
ULACIT includes COIL learning experiences in selected courses with the objective of bringing together students and professors across cultures to learn, discuss and collaborate as part of their class. Professors partner to design the experience, and students partner to complete the activities designed.
