Re: [LearningTechnologiesSIG] Online English courses used by universities?
- Hi Eric,
I'm sorry I did not reply sooner. I've been off line, painting. My
International Writing Exchange (IWE) has been running since 1993 for
classes of undergraduates, and is still running now, with partners from
Japan, Korea, France and Argentina. The writing courses are organised in
six-week rounds using local teachers, and they are very structured.
Classes are expected to keep deadlines and to commit for six weeks. New
classes are welcome to join us in September; teachers interested should
write to me off line.
You can see some recent work at www.writeit.to/sys and read about my
earlier work in my publications:
All the best,
