TLT Fellow Michael Elavsky will discuss recent efforts to transform COMM 410 from a course on International Mass Communication to an experience in cultural understanding. By partnering Penn State students with their peers in the Czech Republic on collaborative group projects, the new COMM 410 strives to inspire about new levels of cross-cultural empathy and respect. The affordances of technology create unique opportunities for information sharing and collaboration, and the process of implementing such technologies will be discussed. International group projects also come with their share of challenges to overcome. How these were managed will also be discussed.
