Intercultural Competence in web-based student exchange environments
Paper in proceedings, 2013

In this paper, three case studies of web-based peer interaction with different agendas are investigated. The pedagogical design concerns language learners engaged in intercultural exchanges over blogs and wikis. The data consist of posted online interaction and interviews where the student activities are mapped out in relation to steps in Intercultural Communicative Competence online. The results show that the planning and implementation are specifically important phases in intercultural exchanges.
