The INTENT Project | Raising greater awareness of telecollaboration

The INTENT Project | Raising greater awareness of telecollaboration | INTENT Project News | Scoop.it

This page aims to  keep you up to date with all the latest developments and publications by the INTENT project team.

 

Telecollaboration involves engaging groups of learners in distant locations in collaboration together through online technologies. Our Erasmus Multilateral Project INTENT (Integrating Telecollaborative Networks into Foreign Language Higher Education) aims to raise greater awareness among students, educators and decision makers of telecollaboration as a tool for virtual mobility in FL education at university level and also on achieving more effective integration of telecollaboration in Higher Education Institutions.

 

If you want to learn more about the  background of our project, you can visit our website (http://intent-project.eu/) or contact the project team  (intentproject@gmail.com). You can also read our introductory flyer in six languages here (http://intent-project.eu/?q=node/47).
