GINTL Coffee Chat with the University of Lapland: UNESCO/UNITWIN Network on Teacher Education for Social Justice and Diversity’s project: Global Media Education through Development of Online Teaching (GloMEd)

The GloMed project is based on the collaboration between the University of Lapland and the Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) in the UNITWIN/UNESCO Network on Teacher Education for Social Justice and Diversity in Education, the first UNITWIN network coordinated by Finland (University of Lapland), since its establishment in 2018.

We teach during the course themes such as fact checking, Artificial Intelligence literacy and international communication.

About the GINTL Coffee Chats

GINTL Coffee Chats are one-hour online morning events. Each event has a speaker who shares on a specific topic for 15 to 20 minutes. The rest of the time is spent in breakout rooms by GINTL regional networks or thematic topics. Each breakout room has a notetaker and facilitator, who records and runs the discussion. After, the goal is to facilitate more opportunities for discussion and to continue using the online platform to foster ideas and collaboration.
