Reports from the field on Intercultural Communicative Competence through telecollaboration and foreign language learning
We are inviting chapter contributions to an online double blind peer reviewed publication on Learning beyond Culture,Intercultural Communicative Competence (ICC), Telecollaboration, and Foreign Language (FL) Learning. TheseReports from the Fieldcan include descriptions and results of classroom action-research, best practices, and lessons for instructional design.
The purpose of this publication is essentially to support teachers in higher education who are concerned about the development of ICC in their students and colleagues.
Aiming to support plurilingualism in our contributing authors, the publication welcomes proposals written in English, Portuguese, and Spanish. Please note, however, that the object of study is not limited to any particular languages. The target readers are teachers and researchers as well as creators of instructional design and materials in Higher Education.
The team of peer reviewers will be composed of the contributing authors and the editors. Please note that, when you submit a chapter proposal, you assume responsibility to participate in the peer review process as a member of this multicompetent team from September 2017 through February 2018.
