Population aging is a global phenomenon and teaching gerontology has moved from domestic to international. The purpose of this paper is to introduce a cross-continent, online “global aging” course designed by gerontological faculty in the United States and Taiwan. Most recently using Zoom, students engaged with global partners to learn about aging topics with an emphasis on the role of cultural and social contexts in the aging process. Results from evaluations by students, global partners and faculty showed that not only did the course expand their world views but they gained confidence in working with older adults in diverse cultures.
