Students in the TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) programs at both universities engaged in collaborative creation of English language learning materials for children in a community center in Bogotá. Materials created were informed by an understanding of the cultural and accessibility context that the university students developed together. The collaborative international exchange is in partial fulfillment of practicum requirements at each institution.
