By bringing global perspectives into your traditional or online classroom, you enable students to encounter a range of opinions and ideas that propel students to approach the subject matter differently. Living and Learning International’s Global Lecture Series allows you to engage with cross-cultural perspectives from experts in their field. From a range of global experts at your finger tips, you may choose guest speakers to contribute to your classroom learning. We are excited to partner with you and showcase global leaders that will enhance your course content.
"We are always looking for innovative ways to help our students engage with some of the world’s most pressing social, environmental and economic issues. L&LI's new Global Lecture Series makes it possible to incorporate diverse perspectives from key leaders across the globe into any of our courses."

"The Global Lecture Series provided a phenomenal opportunity for students in my US-Latin American Relations class to connect with Ecuadorian experiences and perspectives. Doing so allowed them the ability to deepen their knowledge and its implications."

Professor of Politics
L&LI will work with you directly to customize a set of global guest lectures to virtually join your classroom. Mirroring your course syllabus and intended learning outcomes, lectures are tailored specifically to your classroom needs.
A L&LI staff member will join your class virtually as a host to facilitate the experience. This staff member will introduce the speaker to the classroom, assist with any technical needs, and facilitate the question and answer time.
Each lecturer will speak for 40-50 minutes and answer questions for another 10-15 minutes. L&LI is able to provide the platform for video conferencing as needed.
Guest lecturers come from decades of experience in their respective areas. Having dedicated their lives to their field, their knowledge and expertise is unparalleled. Among the lecturers showcased, a plethora of topics are available for a guest lecture. Such topics include community development, hospitality and tourism, sports management, and social justice
