Together Chia and Poe co-developed the ECU Global Understanding Project. In this program, students communicate with students from others countries using real-time video, chat and W2 tools bringing students from around the world together in a common classroom.    Students learn about each other’s culture and work on joint projects.  In five years the project grew to have 28 partners in 22 countries across five continents. Other programs have sprung from this project and all together these efforts have led to effective internationalization of curriculum across the 10 colleges at ECU. The program received the Heiskell Award for Innovative International Education and has been highlighted in the Chronicle of Higher Education as a “best practice” of innovative approaches to internationalization.
