What you'll learn

During this course, inspiration will be provided by practitioners in the field, and you’ll hear about best practices in Europe, Latin America and Africa. We will cover the technology for online international collaboration: lessons learned from blended teaching and learning, constraints and opportunities for technology-supported collaboration.
