2013 COIL Conference – Intercultural Communication in the Global Classroom: Unanticipated Discoveries
Mira Bergelson, Professor, Department of Linguistics and Information Technology, Faculty of Foreign Languages and Regional Studies, Moscow State University; Meredith Harrigan, Associate Professor, Department of Communication, SUNY Geneseo.
Abstract: The purpose of this presentation is to introduce the audience to a globally networked course in Intercultural Communication. The course which ran in the spring of 2011 as part of the COIL Institute brought together students and faculty at SUNY Geneseo and Moscow State University. While the design and structure of the course will be the presenters’ main focus, attention will be paid to the unanticipated learning discoveries that were experienced by faculty and students at both institutions.
