Unicollaboration Research Methods Workshop 2017

Unicollaboration Research Methods Workshop
Valencia (SPAIN), 6th-7th of October, 2017 (Download our flyer)

Virtual Exchanges aka Telecollaboration are an innovative form of online learning which engages learners in interaction and collaboration with classes in distant locations through online communication technologies under the guidance of teachers or trained facilitators. In contrast to many forms of online learning which are based on the transfer of information through video lectures and shared files, telecollaboration is based on student-centred, collaborative approaches to learning where knowledge and understanding are constructed through learner-interaction and negotiation.
