MirandaNet Fellowship Profiles (MirandaNet Archive - as of March 2015)
My work involves supporting schools in their work to embed the global dimension in the curriculum, frequently through an international partnership. I work through the University of Hull, as an independent consultant and through the Global Learning Association. Funders include the British Council, the EU and a number of Local Authorities. I am at the moment involved in an EU project to support school international co-ordinators in their work. This is especially about some of the intercultural challenges that they face in keeping partnerships going and in sustaining them when external funding ends. Research in the project has indicated that intercultural issues can be a real impediment to school links continuing beyond more than a superficial level. I heard about MirandaNet through an excellent UK school Case Study in one of my courses run through the British Council.
I am interested in how schools use ICT to manage their international partnerships and later on to sustain their links when funding comes to an end. This is particularly important at the moment as the number of funding programmes will be severely limited by the end of the year, especially for links with schools in the less developed parts of the world. So I do like to collect ideas and case studies to use during training sessions and in other contexts.
None at the moment, once our EU project progresses I will disseminate it further via Mirandanet.
