The Global Learning Summer Program is a 2-week customized summer program offered to students from Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT), Harbin Institute of Technology (HIT), and Harbin Engineering University (HEU). The purpose of the program is to provide a unique learning opportunity for students to explore our vibrant campus and province and to engage with concepts related to global citizenship.
The integrated intensive program will include approximately 27 hours of academic lectures and field trips, 10 hours of review and project time, and a cross-cultural seminar consisting of 4 hours. Also included in the program are cultural-immersion activities and an optional recreational weekend trip to the Rocky Mountains.
The curriculum for this program will be customized to meet the content requirements of BIT’s Global Learning & Cultural Exchange course, integrating classroom lectures and field trips related to lecture topics.
The program will allow students to apply their learning by working on a presentation which will be delivered by the end of the two weeks.
Cross-Cultural Seminar Component
An understanding of cross-cultural nuances is an essential part of becoming a global citizen. UAI's cross-cultural training seminars aim to help students broaden their understanding of Canadian culture and help them perform successfully both socially and academically in international settings.
Cultural and Recreational Component
While in Edmonton, students will also have the opportunity to explore Edmonton and interact with Canadian culture through planned social and recreational activities.
