The Institute for Globally Networked Learning in the Humanities was a four-phase, three-year long initiative (2010-2013) aimed at preparing and supporting humanities faculty, instructional design and international programs staff in their development and implementation a globally networked course. These courses allowed students to work cross-culturally with their peer students from other countries, without leaving their home campus, using digital technologies such as the internet. These courses helped humanities scholars bring a global perspective to the content of their course, and were a means to internationalize content in an engaging and affordable way. The Institute consisted of five discipline-specific 3-day workshops, an online course, ongoing support for the development and implementation of the course, and a capstone conference for sharing of lessons learned.
