Drs. Sandrine Savona and Martine Wagner presented at the CITL: Celebrating Innovation in Teaching: Poster Session on April 9th at UFS Tampa.  70 faculty came together to share  with their colleagues their unique teaching strategy, technology, or innovative practice.  

Via a Virtual Global Exchange (VGE)  in French Civilization and French for Business classes, their students improve their French linguistic and cross-cultural skills by meeting online with university students at the University Institute of Technology Henri Poincaré in France and collaborating to complete specific assignments.

Students  from both classes videochat outside the classroom to discuss, research, and compare with their partners diverse cultural (education, work/vacations, social system, media, technology, free topic) and professional topics (appropriate greetings in the workplace, resume writing, advantages of internships abroad, tips for a successful interview).
