Overview: International Guest Lectures are a flexible option to incorporate global experiences into your course. This option connects your students to international experts in the field who help tie the academic content to their cultural background and perspectives providing a comparative international context.
Timing: Synchronous or Asynchronous
The international guest lecture experience can feature a single lecture or may be incorporated as a lecture series. Depending on your needs and speaker availability, these experiences generally last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.
