How it Works
The course lasts 45 hours and takes place over one semester in which students meet in synchronous classes via zoom.
The group is in direct contact with the coordination through an exclusive WhatsApp channel and has all the course materials uploaded in a private Google Class.
They will also use different technological apps, Kahoot, Slack, or Miró, to facilitate work and communication in the group work.
Classes are recorded and uploaded in the Google class to facilitate the student's participation.
The program includes one 45-hour class and a 15-hour workshop in which students will work on an international collaborative project using the Design Thinking methodology.
The goal of this program is to explore the concept, responsibilities, and commitment of global citizenship identity in today´s current context. Students will explore the connections between the global and the local, the shared values, and the shared challenges and benefits through the lenses of three major topics: Politics, Identity & Migration.
The program will help students develop understanding and perspectives that constitute global citizenship through engagement with scholars and experts, governmental and non-governmental organizations, and members of local communities addressing Glocal challenges.
As part of the course, students will design a product, create a prototype, and develop the marketing and merchandising strategy. Students will work collaboratively with agile methodologies such as "Design Thinking," forming international and interdisciplinary teams and will have to solve a global challenge.
