Session C4 - Workshop
The workhop "Facing Culture Diversity and Importance in e-Learning" has started on time (12/06/08, 16:30).
Three presentations were delivered by Alfredo Soeiro, Maria Pinto and Sebastian Foti.
The participants together with presenters tried to answer the following questions:
1. Can one concrete measure be indicated to hande culture diversity (learners, tutors, pace learning, cheating) in learning?
2. What factors relate to developing trust in a culturally diverese virtual group?
Example reflections are here:
working in mixed groups, using language which is accepted by all, coping with different habits of learners, assigning reporters for all students groups.
And finally the project "A practical Guide to Implement Intercultural Education at School" presentet by Alfredo Soeiro (Porto University) was a winner of the first prize Evens Foundation. See http://inter.up.pt/ to know more.
