Connected through a screen, two classes that are an ocean apart take the same course and do the same assignments. Our course “ The Global Village” is a globally networked learning environment (Starke-Meyerring and Wilson, 2008) where students from two different universities work and learn together using technology. They meet in a virtual classroom in synchronous sessions through web conferencing; they also work together in intercultural teams through Google Hangouts/Skype, wikis, blogs and email. After exploring their local communities, students identify global connections by comparing their results with their intercultural team members. Teaching in this type of experiential environment required us to adapt our teaching strategies. What better way to share our teaching and learning experience than through a Digital Showcase?
