Thursday 26th June, 14:50 to 15:30
This interactive session reports on the lessons learnt from the engagement with and evaluation of large-scale online intercultural international exchange projects involving the use of English as a Lingua Franca. It illustrates how internationalisation was embedded into the curriculum of the Department of English and Languages and how all year one students (150 in each academic year) engaged with intercultural collaborative tasks that were assessed as part of their mandatory module Introduction to Studying English and Languages at University (100DEL). The session will also discuss the problematic issues encountered with some ‘reluctant global citizens’. It will finally illustrate how the OIL project was documented in the CQEM process.
