Connecting Minds to What Matters
CRS Programs Reach Across the Globe - So Can Your Classroom
What is it?
The CRS Global Solidarity Network Study e-Broad program (GSN) is a web-based "participatory learning community" that connects students and faculty in the United States to Catholic Relief Services policy experts and technical staff working on the front lines of humanitarian relief and developments around the world.
How does it work?
- For a two-week period, students review short essays and videos prepared by CRS and faculty experts on a particular topic
- Students reflect on the material within an online discussion forum
- Then they meet-up to discuss the topic in a live web-meeting with CRS staff
The purpose of this participatory learning community is to more deeply engage students in global issues of pressing concern (e.g. food security, migration, international development, human trafficking, peacebuilding, etc.). The GSN provides students with real-time information and on-the-ground analysis from CRS expert staff working directly on these issues.
When you use the GSN, you can globalize your class without leaving your college or university.
