Abstract

This best practice session shares ways that online students in Russia and Central Asia (Russia, Chechnya, Kazakhstan including the cities of Omsk, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Grozny, Kazan’, amongst other places) learn English in a globally-based online language program. The Webilang program, based out of Omsk, Siberia, provides opportunities for students in Omsk and surrounding regions to learn English. Students develop American and global cultural competence by engaging with faculty members from the United States who communicate and instruct via webconferencing (WebEx) and an asynchronous website that includes active participation in blogging. In this session, we will share the course descriptions and syllabus designs for a variety of courses (four to five) in the Webilang program, including courses designed for youth to learn English, a course in global citizenship, and a course in Academic English for faculty.
