AFS Global Competence Certificate (GCC) or GCC-at-home

The AFS Global Competence Certificate and the GCC-at-home accomplish intercultural and inclusion-skills development through a series of engaging short animated videos, coupled with student discussion forums for deeper reflection, punctuated by guided group facilitation of learning at regular intervals.  Using the original GCC with short-term or semester-long study abroad has been shown to improve group intercultural competence by amounts ranging from one-half an intercultural development stage (8 points) to one full stage of development (15 points). Each is built to guide learners through Vande Berg's four phases of intercultural growth:

  • Developing Self-Awareness
  • Developing Other Awareness
  • Developing Emotional Resilience around difference
  • Building Bridging Skills

Alternative Assessment Strategies for the "Pivot" to Online Learning

This resource from the American University of Cairo suggests some changes that may need to be made when shifting a course from in-person to online modes, and how  to make them!  In general, CILMAR agrees with AUC assessment experts:

Regarding assessment, remember that what is important is to assess that students have achieved your learning outcome(s). How you decide to gather evidence can change for any given course; even as the curriculum stays the same or roughly the same.

Florida International U's Resources for Online Global Learning

Although global learning sometimes focuses on different outcomes than does intercultural learning (at least according to the AAC&U rubrics of the same name), this is still a brilliant collection of resources for pivoting to online learning of any kind.  Among the gems we noticed are the following:

  • Creative Ways to Establish Social Presence (in the online classroom)
  • Structuring Interdependence (collaboration and teamwork)
  • Rubric for a Group Project
  • 3 Ways to Help Students Link Content to the World Around Them
