Pour une aide à la mobilité internationale à travers le tandem
Project acronym: InterTandem
Topics: international mobility, language skills, Tandem method, cross-cultural exchanges
Disciplinary fields: human sciences, foreign language education, intercultural studies
Summary: The general intention of this project is to provide inbound and autbound mobility support. The overall project branches out into four directions:
– For outgoing mobility, create a new channel for disseminating information on international mobility, both academic and professional audiences
– Promote the integration of incoming students
– Develop intercultural skills
– Develop language skills.
The course will be based mainly on the Tandem method. In this context, two students of different mother tongues meet to interact in both languages in order to help each other in their learning. In these meetings, students will have to perform tasks aimed at developing intercultural competence. The tandems will take place on site (AMU and international students) or through videoconference with partner universities. Learners will be supported in developing their learning autonomy in order to develop transversal learn-to-learn skills for lifelong learning. The course will also include conferences from staff of the DRI, Pôle Emploi International and professionals from local bodies working in an intercultural environment. The evaluation will be based on tools developed by the European Commission and the Council of Europe and will allow to better prepare students for employment.
Project duration: 10/22/2018 – 10/21/2020
