iGlobal Virtual Study Abroad Internship

Undergraduates from the College of Education may participate in a virtual study abroad internship for credit (EDUC 199) teaching middle school students from all over the world, online in English.  Interns co-lead the virtual iGlobal club sessions hosted in countries around the world to teach middle school students about the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Interns gain experience in intercultural engagement, online teaching, and global citizenship education.  All training is provided as a part of the internship credit. No previous experience necessary.  Internship requires interest in working with children, learning about other cultures, and building online education curriculum and tools.
