Adapting Cultural Learning to Virtual Setting
Augsburg University

"I have been using the AFS Global Competence Certificate (GCC) as an integral part of a semester-long hybrid online Intercultural Communication course at Augsburg University... I think that the biggest value of the GCC is that it helps students make personal discoveries in addition to academic ones. I look forward to continuing to use the GCC in this course as well as in other settings," says Dr. Ann Lutterman-Aguilar, global faculty member and Mexico Site Director for Augsburg University's Center for Global Education. 

Find out more about how the GCC supported hybrid learning for students at Augsburg University and how other institutions can benefit from this experience.

GCC at Home and at Work Now Available in French
GCC in French
In an effort to make global competence education more accessible, AFS is proud to offer the GCC at Home and GCC at Work programs translated fully into French. In the GCC At Home and At Work learners have the opportunity to collaborate effectively across differences in a program requiring no travel. It brings into learners’ awareness that culture is all around us within our own communities.

This is the 3rd language in which this program is offered, after English and Spanish. Learners can now opt to watch any of the educational videos, use the forum and all other program features in their language of choice. The translation allows us to expand our reach to French language department institutions, public and private sectors and NGOs worldwide.
