The curriculum component, taught in English, connects students from Feevale and from other countries in a multicultural learning environment
Feevale University is offering, for the first time, a curricular component taught in English, which takes place simultaneously in Brazil, Peru and Germany.The course of Internationalization and Cultures - which was previously offered only to students of the Institution in Portuguese - addresses concepts of globalization and internationalization focusing on multicultural dialogues. The classes are taught by the professor and director of International and Institutional Relations at Feevale, Paula Casari Cundari.
The classes include 12 Peruvian students from Toulouse Lautrec Institute, four Germans from IST University of Applied Sciences, and seven Brazilians from Feevale University. Foreign academics attend the activities virtually, and Brazilians attend in person at Campus II.
The meetings aim to provide knowledge of international relations, from a systemic approach to economic, technological, social and cultural trends. For Paula, global integration enables real exchanges as well as different cultural perspectives about the world. "We are always changing, and we are in a moment of reconnection after being two years in remote teaching. Many of the practices with which we had to adapt during the pandemic will be incorporated into our daily lives, such as the expansion of learning environments, innovative practices, and integrating academic communities into other interpretations of time and space", she points out.
The classes include interpretation of the theoretical framework, teacher mediation and use of active learning methodologies. In addition, seminars will be held, classes with partner universities, case analysis with mentoring, and execution of joint activities with the participation of visiting teachers and international students.
