Pre-mobility eTandem


Project Details

This eTandem project was set up between students in the US two months before they left for a mobility program to Padova in Italy and university students in Padova who had signed up for an eTandem project to improve their English.

The project was intended to have students doing activities in pairs, as in traditional eTandem, but also to try to form a group with, for example, forum discussions. A Moodle site was set up to provide prompts for pair discussion but also a group dialogue space and also a container to gather reflective diaries and student feedback.
