Connecting Countries Video Chats
Connecting Countries VideoChats are discussions between FIU students in South Florida, our international campuses, and partner institutions around the globe. These activities leverage technology to make intercultural connections via Skype, Polycom, or other videoconferencing systems.
A primary focus of Global Learning in coordinating this series is achieving insight on what works in intercultural communication. We strive to foster not simply conversation, but meaningful conversation. We identify faculty experts from one or all of the participating sites to act as facilitators. After each session, feedback is collected, analyzed, and used to maintain a list of best practices in hosting video-linked discussions.
If you have a topic suggestion or connection at an institution abroad, please contact us at email@example.com.
