Global Learning Experience (GLE)

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​A Global Learning Experience (GLE), also known as virtual exchange (VE), is a technology-enabled learning experience that is embedded within an existing DePaul course and has clear outcomes and deliverables, in which sustained communication and interaction takes place between DePaul students and students from an international partner institution. In a GLE course, students engage in academic discussions, collaborative projects and joint lectures coordinated by the DePaul professor and their international partner.

Examples of DePaul GLE courses can be found here.

A GLE course can also satisfy one of the requirements for completion of the Global Fluency Certificate (for undergraduate students). Learn more here​.

Find Your GLE Course

Current DePaul students can find upcoming courses that have a GLE component in Campus Connection by following these steps:

  • Within Campus Connect, select the "Student Homepage," and click on the "Manage Classes" tile.
  • On the left grey Navigation bar, select "Class Search and Enroll," and select the desired Term.
  • Search by subject/LSP domain/instructor's last name/course number etc.  
  • Once the results of your search are populated, scroll down via the left navigation bar to "Class Attribute" and click on "Global Learning/Global Learning Experience." ​​(Note: "Global Learning/Global Learning Experience" will not appear if this value has not been attributed to any classes under the specific search criteria).
DePaul students can register for the course as they normally would. There is no extra cost to participate in the GLE.
