Prof. Victor Barlow teaches CNIT 399 in Peru (3 credit hours) 

The program is located in Peru, at the Lima campus of TECSUP.  

The purpose of the program is to present students with an international perspective of information systems modeling with Unified Modeling Language (UML) and the development of mobile applications, such as a banking application for deployment on a smart phone.  The students will design and develop a smart phone application in android native or a multi-platform (framework-based) language and a web service based on JSON (REST web service) to interact with the web application.  As the course will be taught by both Purdue and TECSUP faculty and Purdue and TECSUP students will work together collaboratively in teams, they will benefit from international aspects of learning and receive a more global perspective of information technology and its use throughout the world.  The course will consist of approximately 9 days of academic classroom instruction, 6 hours each day for a total of about 54 total classroom hours.  At least one pre-departure meeting will be scheduled at Purdue. The course also contains a cultural component after the conclusion of the academic portion. This program offer participating students three (3) upper-division elective credits which may be used in all CIT plans of study.

This program will focus on three (3) key intercultural effectiveness skills: curiosity, openness and intercultural empathy.  Purdue students will be paired in teams with local students and work together on a team project.  At the conclusion of the academic program, the group will fly from Lima to Iquitos and visit the Amazon rainforest.  There will be a post-program, guided reflection on the in-country intercultural learning process.
