News from Feb 22, 2016
Today marks the beginning of a series of important days for the Center for Global Politics, as once again the center plays host to the latest round of in-house classes. This morning, students from around the world who take part in the International Relations Online (IRO) and East European Studies (EES) blended learning masters programs have met at the CGP within Freie Universitat Berlin.
Open arriving, the diverse student cohort gathered together with their fellow peers, lecturers and program coordinators for a group photo at the Henry Ford Building. While the weather was somewhat less-than-favorable the atmosphere was cheerful and all of the students were ready to dive in to their first day of in-house classes for 2016.
The in-house classes themselves are a unique component of the CGP’s blended learning master programs. While these programs are conducted mostly online, the in-house classes, held every 6 months, give students the ability to meet together in a single place and learn as a cohort. Not only does this help them gain some of the benefits of learning from their lecturers in person, it also helps them socialize among their peers and build up contacts for later in life.
