Global Classrooms

When: 10am-12noon

If interested, please contact to see if there are places available.

A global classroom uses digital technologies to connect physical in-person classroom spaces around the world in real-time. It offers an innovative, digital, low-carbon approach to global engagement, through cross-national co-design and co-delivery of interdisciplinary, experiential education across Lancaster’s international campuses and strategic partner universities.

In this event, the Global Classroom team will present on the development, design, and delivery of the first Global Classroom module – including the challenges, opportunities, and lessons learned. We also look forward to our roundtable discussions with you on the next steps for the initiative.

UG Research Conference

When: 2-3.30pm

Please register for a place online.

In March we will deliver our 5th annual UG Research Conference (UGRC) involving students from Lancaster and our partner campuses overseas and the UK. The online conference provides students with an opportunity to showcase and celebrate research they have conducted, whether as part of a dissertation, internship, placement or coursework.

We are keen to take this time during Global Week to work with collaborate with colleagues on the next steps for the conference, including how we can:

  • Grow and innovate the model
  • Engage more students in sharing their research
  • Develop the conference delivery to appeal to a wider audience
