Promoting Critical Thinking in Online Intercultural Communication
Batardière, Marie-Thérèse
The EUROCALL Review, v23 n1 p3-10 Mar 2015
This paper investigates the educational experience arising from the use of an online discussion forum in an undergraduate blended learning language programme; to do this, it focuses on the type of cognitive processes that learners experience during a computer-mediated collaborative task and explores the potential causal relationship between the instructional strategies and the students' cognitive activity. Findings indicate that the "teaching presence" had a significant indirect influence on the outcome of the online intercultural interactions.
