Global Connections

The Global Connections project began in 2012 to encourage UK faculty to link their courses with other classes taught around the world. As a Global Connections course, History 405 supported international cultural exchange through frequent video conferences with a comparable class at the Université Sorbonne Nouvelle Paris 3 campus. Drs. Kathi Kern and Hélène Quanquin developed the course with a commitment to innovative teaching that broadened the learning experience of students across continents.

Abdul Khalil, Professor of Mining Engineering at Balkh University in Afghanistan, recently participated in an international collaboration with the University of Kentucky's College of Engineering and Department of Mining Engineering. As part of the program, Professor Khalil attended a series of curriculum and instructional workshops led by CELT. He hopes that incorporating new teaching and learning strategies will yield better opportunities for his students, who will be able to complete their degrees and find locally-based jobs exploring the region’s terrain.
