Interkulturelles Lernen in elektronischen Lernumgebungen

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


The central research question addressed in this contribution asks how online exchanges between language students via the internet can contribute to the general educational aim of intercultural communication: a field of research that in the context of language education has been referred to as 'network-based language teaching' (Warschauer 2000)and 'telecollaboration' (Belz 2003). Based on the rationale that the contribution of computer-mediated communication to intercultural learning is still rather ambiguous, this article provides a brief outline of research literature in this area and relates the findings to an asynchronous email-exhange between Australian and German university students, studying German and English respectively.
