Exploring Student Experiences of a Global Link: Recommendations for Future Programs\ Ko, Bomna
Summary or Abstract
In many universities within and outside of the USA, globalization has become a pervasive idea that has developed into an integral part of the educational agenda in the 21st century. Pressure on higher education to prepare students for global readiness and citizenship has promoted a shift of internationalization strategies, policies, and activities from a marginal to the “mainstreaming of internationalization” (Hahn, 2004, p. 123) in higher education. Purposes of this study were: a) present the essential steps used to develop “global link” and b) present the experiences of the students who participated in the global link. The global link was incorporated into one graduate distance education course through four stages: a) establishing partnership, b) pre-planning steps for global link, and c) activating global link, and d) assessing student experiences. Student responses were collected through questionnaires and interviews. Students characterized their experiences related to the benefits as themes of Newness of Virtual Mobility, and Beginning of International Awareness. The challenges of the experiences emerged as the themes Innate Factors and “Technology is great when it works”. This study also provides strategies and suggestions for developing effective global links in higher education.
