ATHENS, W.Va. – The Global Collaboration Symposium at Concord University originally planned for Monday, Oct. 29 has been rescheduled for Monday, Nov. 26. Poster presentation sessions will be held from 1 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Student Center Ballroom.

Concord University teacher education students have collaborated with peers at Australia’s Victoria University during the fall 2012 semester. They have shared information on school systems, types of diversity, teaching methodologies, large-scale assessments, issues in education and other topics.

Students will showcase the variety of technologies they utilized in the collaboration (Skype, Google Docs, Voice Thread, Wikis, etc.) while underlining cultural awareness and acceptance.

The presenters are students in the University’s innovative EPAT which is an integrated course incorporating several upper level education courses.

Earlier in the day, Concord students in the elementary methods block will conduct small and whole group activities for fourth graders from Athens Elementary School. This session begins at 11:45 a.m. in the ballroom. Activities for art, reading, social studies, math, science, and diversity will be conducted. Each will be centered on Australia.
