Prepare for interacting in an online environment while at the same time learn about Canada and the wider global community

Communication Skills for Global Citizenship Online

These customized online study seminars are for you if…

You want to excel at intercultural online communication.

The world is now more connected than ever. Many institutions, businesses, and levels of government promote working, studying, and interacting remotely. The concept of online communities is not new, but they may become more common and necessary in the future.

This course is designed to prepare participants for interacting in an online environment while at the same time learning about Canada and the wider global community through the exploration of themes of history, culture, diversity, sustainability, community engagement and intercultural communication.

The course has three core components plus supplementary interactive opportunities:

A ‘live’ virtual class where students will have the opportunity to ask their instructor questions and to collaborate with other students.

A customized website on selected global citizenship topics with guiding videos and language support resources for students to do independently.

A daily reflective assignment consisting of two parts: written and video or recorded.

Supplementary workshops and online social activities led by our Student Engagement Centre coordinators: virtually meet and interact with other English Language School students at different language levels and from all over the world.
