Transformations Article on the Globally Connected Language Classroom

Our joint case study on the globally connected language classroom was recently published in the online journal “Transformations” on the  Academic Commons website.

Summary: The language classroom is a most fruitful place for intercultural, global learning. Digital technologies allow us to make intercultural connections like never before and in the process language-learning benefits from real communication about real issues. Connecting two language courses globally requires overcoming many obstacles and challenges (time difference, collaboration, technology, funding, resources, etc.) but a strong belief that the benefits outweigh the costs serves as a constant source for pushing on.

We look forward to comments from colleagues and students alike! 

A special Dankeschön! to our students in German at Denison and AUBG for your engagement and enthusiasm in this teaching and learning project!
