  2. 2. • The origins of UNICollaboration: • “…telecollaboration continues to be seen as an ‘add-on’ activity which essentially depends on pioneering teachers and highly motivated students and is not considered an integrated or normalised part of study programmes and syllabi at university level.” • O’Dowd, R. (2011). “Online foreign language interaction: Moving from the periphery to the core of foreign language education?” Language Teaching 44/ 3: 368-380.
  3. 3. Objectives: • Carry out a review of telecollaboration in European university education • Develop a set of workable solutions to address the lack of academic integration of telecollaboration. • Develop a platform with tools, resources and networks to facilitate telecollaborative practice.
