This extra course offering is part of the research project ‘Digital Communities and Online Intercultural Competence’ headed by Dr. Milene Mendes de Oliveira and funded by the German-Ministry of Education and Research. Interactions happening throughout the course, and especially the game sessions, will be recorded for research purposes. A term of informed consent, which ensures compliance with ethical and data-protection measures for research data, will be given to participants. Moreover, technical conditions for participating in the course involve stable internet connection, a microphone, and a camera as well as the willingness to sign up for a few (free) online tools, such as conceptboard and Trello.
