Learning Café CNT25
Developing International Projects in Virtual Learning Environments
Date Thursday, Dec 7 Time – Room Charlottenburg 3
Join this round table session for insights into how to design projects for international collaboration using technological solutions. We will discuss solutions to challenges, such as: not knowing colleagues at other universities, who could be a perfect match for your international teaching project; not having expertise in applying appropriate didactical approaches and tools to run international online learning projects or: lacking experience in managing transnational projects, using remote collaboration tools to handle intercultural issues in an appropriate way.

As a lecturer in Publishing and Media, I enjoy introducing students into the fascinating world of international trade publishing. I have worked in the book publishing industry (crime novels) and I now teach publishing and media concepting at the Media, Information & Communication Programme.
My research focusses on lecturer's ways of curating (digital) learning materials in Higher Education. Also, I am involved in several international projects at our university, and am looking into ways to have students collaborate across borders remotely, using digital platforms.
