Working on the EMCC as a student means being a part of the decision making process of what future learning should look like.
On Sunday the 17th of May I flew to Istanbul to work on the self-assessment part of the European Media Cloud Campus (EMCC). The EMCC is a multicultural online learning environment, which will be launched in 2017. In this week full of lectures, discussions and cultural barriers we have to decide which levels of knowledge students will be able to achieve within the program and how it should be measured.
Working together with people from different cultures is not as easy as you would expect. The main goal of this week is to create a sustainable model for the self-assessment part of the EMCC. But because of all the different ways of learning and teaching of the participating countries, it is quiet difficult to create a model everybody likes. Besides these differences it is also important to think about how the learning environments of the future will look like and integrate that in the project as well. The EMCC will be launched in 2017 so when it comes to technology and possibilities, it will be way more advanced.
Working on the EMCC as a student means being a part of the decision making process of what future learning should look like. You have the unique opportunity to work together with professors and students from five different countries and learn their points of view on how future learning should look like. To me, it is a great learning experience.
