In a globalised business world it is becoming increasingly important for graduates to know how to work in global virtual teams and collaborate across technology, cultures and time. A quick and easy way to build these learning experiences is with free apps such as Google Apps. This e-poster will showcase how RMIT University has used Google Apps to design, execute and evaluate collaborative online international learning projects and global work integrated learning (WIL) activities. Quick reference guides and a technology mind map will also be supplied.
Two good practice guides, under development as an extension of the original AIEA-supported Learning and Teaching Across Cultures suite, will also be discussed and workshopped for input into the final guides. These will assist educators to develop international learning experiences for graduate employability.
This e-poster will provide you with assistance for planning, executing and evaluating collaborative online international learning projects and virtual global WIL online activities. Research concerning the need for global skills will be shared along with best practice approaches.
