Heilbronn University of Applied Sciences (Heilbronn) - ORT Braude College of Engineering (Karmiel)
Students of English at the Sontheim campus in Heilbronn and in Künzelsau have been participating in a telecollaborative project in English with Braude College in Israel.
Nearly 70 students at HHN and Braude College work in pairs or threes in video conference meetings over a period of five weeks on different tasks that have been developed jointly by the teaching staff at HHN and Braude College.
In the process, communication skills are trained and the students' awareness of intercultural issues is raised. In the recorded final presentations, which the students prepare together, the aim is to critically question stereotypes and, if necessary, to refute them.
The feedback is positive. The students gain insights into a new culture and often consciously confront their own for the first time.
