A number of Modern Languages staff will be presenting at the Intercultural Connections Southampton Conference, taking place on Tuesday 28th April 2015 from 9:00-16:30 in Garden Court, Highfield Campus.
Amongst the sessions, Julie Watson will be presenting on the following theme: “Get Ready for Southampton: a pre-arrival online transition course for all international students coming to the University of Southampton”. Designed and coordinated by the eLanguages team in Modern Languages, the 2015 version of this course is now live, with over 200 students already participating from 52 countries. Last year 2,500 students had participated in the course by the end of the summer.
The conference, part of the Intercultural Connections Southampton project, will provide opportunities for students and staff to share intercultural and international experiences and research; develop new ideas to improve intercultural and international experiences for all; and network and form collaborations across the University.E Languages
