From the UF International Center website on this UF project:
Collaborative International Teaching Network (CITN)
The CITN has been modestly funded by the Provost’s Creative Campus Initiative. The goal of the CITN is to guide and support faculty to engage creatively with collaborative international teaching opportunities. Virtual exchange (VE) enables students and faculty to connect virtually across national borders and campuses to engage in asynchronous and synchronous project-based activities to examine global issues and problem-solving from diverse perspectives. The CITN will facilitate these opportunities by building upon existing UF VE initiatives to connect UF faculty with each other and with international partners. It will organize and impart training activities to develop course materials and compile resources at a central web location. The ultimate goal is to establish a campus-wide initiative that trains, supports, and rewards instructors for implementing pedagogies that break down campus boundaries and disciplinary silos to transform learning.
