This is a scheduled meeting so representatives from their respective packages come together and update in person each other on how the work is progressing. A major event on the meeting was unveiling of Part A part of the e-Coach platform which is delivering the Multicultural course by our partners from the Netherlands who have been working on it since the multicultural case repository was introduced in Tartu! The WP3 partners presented the content as well as tell the story behind the development to what we have today. Our USA partners joined in to provide insight and their expertise on the topic.

The new e-Coaching looks wonderful! It is a product of creative minds that found interesting and entertaining ways to deal with the challenges that teachers and mentors working in multicultural environments face today. The content is filled with texts, stories, pictures and movie clips. And to give you a hint, here is a little preview!
