We are thrilled to be in Chicago at the Global Learning Conference, hosted by DePaul University and the SUNY COIL (Collaborative Online International Learning) Center. One of today’s panels, which I’m moderating, features some of the people who run programs supported by the Stevens Initiative.

Rhianna Rogers, Associate Professor of Interdisciplinary Studies at Empire State College, has been conducting a COIL course, Learning in the Digital Age. The course connects students in Lebanon and New York. Check out the week-by-week plan and materials on her course page.

Michael Kimball is Associate Professor of Anthropology at the University of Northern Colorado. He has integrated the Soliya Connect Program into his courses for over a decade. He’s the author of the forthcoming book Ethnowise, which has a chapter dedicated to Soliya and virtual exchange.

Lisa Roberts is the Project Director of the STEAMuseum at Chicago Sister Cities International. Watch a video below that shows high school students and teachers in Chicago and Casablanca talking about their virtual exchange experience.
