The Global Classroom

The Global Classroom, a collaboration of Arizona State University and Leuphana University, funded by Stiftung Mercator, is an experiment that brings together students from different cultures in a collaborative, digitally enhanced transdisciplinary learning environment.

Over the course of four semesters they will work in small teams under the supervision of prominent faculty members from both universities applying problem based learning methods to real life issues in sustainability and science in culture. The curriculum emphasizes research from the beginning and, taking advantage of new media and publication venues, students will add to the knowledge base in their fields in form of peer-reviewed and edited publications, presentations and virtual exhibits.
