North-South Knowledge Partnerships : Promoting the Canada-Latin America Connection - Phase II

Phase I (104033) sought to foster learning partnerships between Canadian and Latin American research and training institutions by testing, analyzing and documenting different modes of collaboration based on information and communications technology (ICT). In Phase II, the research team will create a supporting structure (portal) for online courses, electronic publications, a virtual library, etc., and provide short-term working and learning opportunities for students with a view to consolidating, promoting and refining the Internet-based model developed in Phase I. The idea is to support ongoing North-South and South-South knowledge partnerships based on participatory, constructivist and democratic management of information and learning implemented through integrated ICT-based pedagogical approaches, resources and practices.
