Policy for Open Educational Resources

Policy for Open Educational Resources | Intercultural competence | Scoop.it

The POERUP project follows on nicely from OPAL and is interested in focusing on the policy debate around OER and their associated practices.  In particular, we aim to •stimulate uptake of OER by policy through derivation of evidence-based policies. This will include studying end-user–producer communities, a set of country reports and a series of in-depth European case studies (and some selected case studies worldwide).

9 Outstanding Apps to Teach Creative Writing

9 Outstanding Apps to Teach Creative Writing | Intercultural competence | Scoop.it

"Creative writing is something students get to learn by the frequency of practice, the more they practice the better they become.Some students develop a negative attitude towards writing because they were never been shown the real joy they can get in engaging in such an act. The traditional way of teaching writing is no longer working. We can not provide a pen and blank paper and expect our students to produce solid pieces of writing. This is a process of commitment, students need to feel connected to the writing task they are immersed in, they need to love it and to love it they need to see why they need to write after all."

Cultural Detective and Cross-Cultural Transitions: Improve global business productivity with the latest intercultural competence tools and thinking. | Intercultural competence | Scoop.it

Do you ever talk about culture shock? Are you responsible for helping those relocating abroad or returning from an overseas assignment? In that work, do you reference the U-curve or the W-curve? 

 

If so, your approach has some fatal flaws according to many academics (Pedersen, Berry) and practitioners, and has been completely rejected by others (Ward), as is explained in some depth in Kate Berardo’s research (Luton Business School, University of Befordshire UK).
