SWAP MEETING

Everything

General Information

In a globalized world with the great amount of useful ICT that internet provides, all aspects of daily life as well as all the disciplines have changed drastically. Here can be included the educational field. The classes continue changing from a teacher-centered approach to a more student-centered in which they are the focus of the classes with their active participation and responsibility about their own learning process. That is the reason why, this project aims at developing different skills such as: language skills, communication skills, critical thinking, intercultural competence, among others of the foreign languages community of the university of Pamplona by means of the development of three sessions called “swap meetings” in which students from around the world participate in an unicollaboration class by exchanging knowledge and cultural aspects of their hometowns.
