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 to know more.

The workshop was excellent. To bad it was in the end of the day and it was to good outside to be inside.
The 3 presentations were of very good quality. Next time I come to Portugal I have to go to Porto and visit the e-learning cafĂ©, it’s such a good idea, a excellent project special for students. You have to present this idea to others, I believe one excellent way to learn.
How luck are students from UNF to have a professor that really cares about them. I have already download the INTER Guide, but I did have time to read, it looks like some thing of good quality.
