Abstract

To meet the ever-growing need for special educators across cultures, the University of North Texas (UNT)is providing four "globally enhanced" on-line courses for prospective teachers in special education. The courses provide: lectures in Spanish as well as English, units on cultural awareness, video examples of best practices across cultures, and examples of English language learners in a simulated classroom (simSchool). For this project, UNT has partnered with Universidad Casa Grande in Ecuador.
