Programme Objectives

The aim of the project is to foster durable co-operation and exchanges among a consortium of Canadian and European Union universities, promoting mobility of students and academic staff, and at the same time, considering whether the use of new teaching technologies can increase the effectiveness of such exchanges.

 

Programme Description

The focus is integration and disintegration, centre-periphery relations, and regionalism in federal and transnational systems such as Canada and the European Union. The intent is not only to exchange students and faculty, but also to involve non-mobile students in a virtual seminar and simulations of EU and Canadian decision-making. The programme will also involve development and elaboration of simulation materials and experimentation with common courses (virtual seminars) delivered via the internet, as well as experimentation with and evaluation of the possibility of combining more traditional student and faculty exchanges with the use of new teaching technologies and the internet.
