225px-Flinders_University_logoIn a continuation of previous collaboration around the ‘Glocal Classroom‘, ComDev’s teaching team, led by Mikael Rundberg in Adelaide as well as Ronald Stade and Oscar Hemer in Malmö will be co-facilitating a 4-day Intensive teaching module using educational ICTs to bring on-campus and distance students together in a ‘blended classroom’. The event is organized by long-term ComDev collaborator Professor Susanne Schech at the School of History and International Relations.

The topic, Timor-Leste: Challenges of a new state in the Asian century, aims to equip students with the skills that enable them to perform professionally and socially in an international and multicultural context, as well as building discipline knowledge in international relations and international development. The topic centres on an Intensive held on the Flinders campus in Adelaide, Australia, which distance students participate in real time using educational ICTs including Skype, Flinders Learning Online (FLO), live-streamed video and chat. Central to the learning experience is participation in a synchronous in-person and online conference and simulation.

ComDev students will be able to join the conference and policy simulation; the conference will also be live-streamed and you can contact Micke for additional details.

The full conference program is available here: Timor Leste conference program and will take place on 19-20 April from 7.30-11.30 Swedish time.
