Interested IFSP professors must be available by May 15
IFSP's International Relations Advisory (Arinter) discloses to teachers the opportunity to develop work in conjunction with Tecnológico de Antioquia (TdeA) in Colombia, in the COIL (Collaborative Online International Learning) model. Registration must be completed by May 15.
The long-term internationalization strategy proposed by Conif (National Council of Institutions of the Federal Network of Professional, Scientific and Technological Education) aims to pair professors from Federal Network institutions with teachers from TdeA so that they can work in the planning of subjects, preferably from the regular grade, (from learning objectives to assessment methods) in order to stimulate the development of global skills in students from both countries.
“Simply put, the COIL model consists of the development of regular common disciplines taught online by professors from IFSP and Colombia, which is valid in both countries for undergraduate and graduate courses”, explains International Relations advisor, Cynthia Regina Fischer. "These disciplines can also be offered as a university extension or even validate as complementary credits if they agree", he adds.
In this first moment, it is enough for Brazilian institutions to present proposals for themes in which they identify professors willing to participate in this initiative.
Activities can be done in both languages (with the suggestion that written materials be translated) and through the EaD platform that is most convenient. However, it is not a totally virtual offer, that is, the proposals must contemplate activities to be carried out by the students in person (in their own institutions). The classes may be approximately 35 students, including Brazilians and Colombians.
The interested professor, after talking with his course coordinator and the direction, must make the proposal directly, filling the online form available at the link https://bit.ly/2VTpP7X until May 15st.
Registrants must send a copy to the email so that the process is monitored by Arinter.
