Digital Bridges: Online Education Fostering Partnerships for Research and Teaching

This project brings together expertise in international development with expertise in technology-related fields like artificial intelligence, machine learning, language technologies, robotics, and computer-supported collaborative learning to propose a more scalable, organic way to create a vibrant environment for globalized instructional support and collaborative professional development. Existing resources developed in the team’s prior research provide both the infrastructure for the global professional development effort as well as one of the resources participating instructors can use. The proposed research provides the opportunity for testing the generality of findings from educational research primarily conducted in the US and abroad.
