15 undergraduate students from across a range of subject areas at Warwick teamed up virtually with 15 counterparts from Shanghai Jiao Tong University over three weeks between 26 June - 19 July 2023 to consider Issues facing port cities between the 19th and 21st Centuries across the world. Applications will open in the spring term 2023.
The programme will consider this year's theme of 'Global Problems in Global Cities'. In particular how different nations have dealt with different crises and challenges with sessions considering this in the context of Asia, America and Europe in the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries.
Academic experts from SJTU and Warwick will support student groups who will deliver group presentations at the end of the programme.
The activity aims to build students' skills and experience in intercultural communication, interdisciplinary collaboration, virtual group work, managing projects across multiple time zones and presentation.
Approximately 40 hours of structured teaching time. Additional time will be required to undertake group working during this programme.
