I am very grateful for having being part of the 2021 GCSC Certificate Program cohort and the experiences and new insights gained during this three-month learning journey. The whole program was very professionally prepared, organized and delivered. A fair amount of lectured content and inputs for self-study activities. The climate within our cohort was always as very respectful and supportive. The GCSC team set a very positive tone which enhanced the positive attitude that my peers brought to the program. The pressure resulting from the final project (capstone + jury presentation) helped me to keep focused and committed to the program. I am always grateful for opportunities that force me to leave my comfort zone and set me in the state of productive anxiety! The GCSC Certificate Program has been such an opportunity. I am sure that I will make good use of the knowledge and tips gained when designing and facilitating COIL projects at my university in the future.

Head of International Affairs at Unichristus

As an Intercultural Trainer & International and Experiential Learning Educator, I’m always looking for ways in which to keep updating my toolbox and improving my program delivery. From October to December of 2020 I participated in the Certificate Program and after completing it really recommend it to all involved in training, teaching, coaching, and team building. The Managers are very knowledgeable and have created an amazing learning journey that builds upon their expertise as well as the experience and knowledge of the other educator peers who joined me.
You create your own online learning design in the Certificate Program. What’s brilliant about this particular course is that it gives you an architect’s view into an award-winning interactive online program while simultaneously providing you with the necessary steps to create your own. The breadth and depth of the 4 modules nicely lead towards the final capstone. Thanks to this program I was able to design EUSA’s “Virtual Internship Program” and am very pleased with the result! After this course, I am confident that we can deliver meaningful experiential learning opportunities for university students who will be serving companies in the international virtual space!
Almendra Staffa-Healey

Madrid Director of EUSA Academic Internship Programs

I got engaged in the course from the very first moment. Everything about this program was different and innovative: the fun and warm environment, the use they did of music, the structure and dynamics, the visuals and graphics, and the online learning platform.
In only three months I’ve learned what instructional design is from scratch, and I feel confident enough to put it into practice. This course provided me with the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and tools that I need to create an intercultural and educational project in and out of the virtual space. It also gave me a 360 overview of project management and implementation.
Along with the training program, we had the chance to participate as observers in the global case study challenge and in many different workshops and seminars. This definitely enlarged my professional network and brought me new possibilities for collaboration.
Recommendable? 100%

Global Education Consultant & Strategist

The GCSC was not only a training and a program but also a community. During the three-month period, I learned so many valuable tools, resources, and processes with the highly experienced GCSC program educators, and also from my fellow peers. I highly recommend the program for those that wish to take their content and training to the next level as educators as well as create meaningful connections with people who are likewise passionate about Intercultural education and training!

Founder Raw Culture

I often think of that time in 2020; the training, contacts, while seeing the view in the backroom seats to all the action of the Global Case Study challenge. It was a lifeline for me both professionally and personally at the time. I’m very grateful to have been part of the 2020 cohort. It helped me feel more settled in the virtual space and find my way around what matters there too. These days, I strongly identify as a digital migrant, who is forever learning and I continue to make the most of what’s possible with this late-stage career, hybrid identity!
