A virtual international classroom for the common good
Herco Fonteijn, Maastricht University (Netherlands)
Virtual mobility stimulated students in Indonesia, Turkey and Europe to engage in online teamwork. Students focused on humanitarian work and jointly produced teaching materials. Intercultural and virtual collaborative problem solving (uncertainty management, perspective taking) competences were strengthened. After discussing lessons learnt, plans to extend the project to enable development of global citizenship competence will be shared.
