Transcript of INTENT

Challenges for European universities:
student mobility
development of students' foreign language and intercultural competencies
Today's Challenges ...
Tomorrow's Promises Our INTENTions ... The INTENT project aims to support university educators and policy makers in these areas by developing a network of telecollaboration for universities in Europe and beyond. Collaborative project work between groups of learners across time zones and geographical distance through the use of online communication tools as part of an ongoing development of language proficiency, intercultural communicative competence, and multiliteracies.
What is telecollaboration? What are our specific aims?

1. Establish a clear overview of the levels of use of telecollaboration across European Higher Education Institutions
2. Identify practical barriers to the take-up of telecollaboration.
3. Develop a set of tools, telecollaborative models and partner networks to overcome barriers and facilitate telecollaboration practice.
4. Achieve workable solutions to the lack of academic recognition which telecollaboration receives at Higher Education level.
5. Publish documents and make presentations to inform the academic community.
6. Engage decision makers at institutional, regional and national levels in a collaborative dialogue
How will we be supporting the development of telecollaborative projects in European Higher Education Institutions? Some of our main activities include:
Carrying out a survey of online intercultural exchange projects which are currently being carried out across Europe.
Developing a virtual platform (www.uni-collaboration.eu) where educators can find partner classes as well as information and training for their telecollaborative projects.
Developing different tools for telecollaborative teachers
an e-portfolio to evaluate students' projects,
databanks of telecollaborative tasks
case studies of previous exchanges.
Holding various regional workshops and an international conference on the theme of telecollaboration for university education.
