The Flinders University Glocal Classroom is part of a world series of seminars in 2014. This project is led by the ComDev team from Malmö University in Sweden and aims to build a global platform for collaboration and exchange in web-based learning involving four universities on four continents – Sweden (Malmö University), South Africa (Stellenbosch University), Canada (University of Guelph), and Australia (Flinders University). Glocal Classrooms are streamed live here.

The Flinders Glocal Classroom focuses on “Timor-Leste: Challenges of a New State in the Asian Century”. It is designed as a two-day intensive topic for university students:

• 24 November 9:00 – 17:00 Academic Conference on Timor-Leste (public, live-streamed)

• 25 November 9:00 – 17:00 The Hypothetical (an interactive workshop for students, live-streamed)

Additionally two workshops are conducted for university educators and professional staff engaged in blended on-campus and online teaching and learning:

• 19 November 14:00 – 17:00 Glocal Classroom workshop (for internal academic & professional staff)

• 26 November 9:30 – 12:30 Glocal Classrooms: pedagogical issues (for academic & professional staff, live-streamed)

 All events take place at the Science Innovation Learning Centre (SILC) at the Flinders University Bedford Park campus. All times are ACDT (UTC+10:30 hours).
