Global Classroom

Home / Global Classroom

Barrett’s Office of Global Initiatives continues to develop and implement several interlocking global engagement programs, one of which is Global Classroom. Global Classroom allows our students—including those without the time or means to participate in our excellent travel programs—to collaborate with and learn alongside peers from institutions abroad. 

The program utilizes Zoom video-conferencing to link a group of Barrett students and an Honors Faculty Fellow with their counterparts at an international partner university. Courses are delivered in a co-teach format with a focus on collaborative projects and presentations. The courses focus on a variety of topics, including climate change, cross-cultural communication and engineering in global society.
