A Teleseminar is a joint seminar held by two partner universities. The aim is that students from both universities jointly cooperate in some small seminar projects. This way students will improve their ability to work collaboratively and learn new techniques and tools to cooperate remotely.
Work methodology. First, a set of projects/seminar topics is presented to the students who register for this project. The second step is to hold a physical meeting between the students of both universities, so that participants meet every other participant, discuss and choose their work topic, organize groups and plan their collaboration. Groups should be composed by members of both universities (2 or 3 students per topic). After that first contact and during the following 6-8 weeks, groups develop their work by cooperating remotely. Finally, a second physical meeting for project presentations and final discussion is held.
Last year a first teleseminar experience has been carried out by the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) and the University of Mannheim (Germany). The first meeting toke place in Donostia-San Sebastian in March 17-18 and the second one in Mannheim in May 19-20.
In the case of the UPV/EHU, the project has been supported by the Department of Computer Architecture and Technology, the Facultad de Informática, and the Vicerrectorado de Calidad e Innovación Docente (University of the Basque Country, UPV-EHU).
Current year (2009-10) we are going to repeat the experience. If you are a student in the Facultad de Informática at the UPV-EHU and you are interested in participating, please contact alberto.lafuente or mikel.larrea at ehu.es
