Why Virtual Course-Embedded Education Abroad?
Students work on real-world issues in small, moderated online teams – and learn experientially in an environment of intercultural exchange and growth.
All programs are led by subject matter experts experienced in online facilitation. A professional Gateway coordinator monitors and supports the program. Cultural exposure and exchange are integral to the online Gateway student experience.
We provide cultural enrichment opportunities that enhance the international engagement we deliver, offering content, context and reflection. Engaging, curated sessions offer students the opportunity to learn more about the host country, explore their own cultural assumptions and work collaboratively across cultural boundaries. Included in our programs are virtual city tours, online cultural excursions, introductory language lessons (when appropriate), guest lectures and an active exploration of intercultural dynamics.
How the Gateway Embedded Program Design Process Works
Gateway works closely with faculty to ensure that programs target specific content, meet learning outcomes, comply with local requirements and are attractive to students.
Subject matter experts, real-world practitioners and skilled online facilitators ensure students are supported and challenged throughout the program. Through lively, interactive sessions students broaden their horizons and learn valuable global skills.
Using a mix of feedback methods we measure impact, impressions, and student takeaways and we share this data with our clients.
