An IPC Project usually consists of three main phases.
The IPC Research is a full online class and represents a more elaborated variation of the project. Its main characteristic is the research orientation. Students carry out small research projects in international groups and compare the results of the participating countries.
The IPC InClass is a shorter version of the IPC Project and can be included in regular clas-ses at any time in the semester. It lasts about four weeks.
During this period students of two or more universities work together on a common topic by discussing texts, research studies, videos, or other materials.
The students of all participating countries summarize their results in a brief presentation per Zoom.
The IPC Global Discussion is a short and flexible version of the IPC Project which can be included in regular classes during the semester. Two or more countries can participate.
In an IPC Global Discussion students of one country prepare a number of questions related to a certain topic for students of one or more other countries.
Students of the other countries collect their answers on appropriate online devices, e.g. on a Padlet or a Mural.
The initiating students summarize, sort and interprete the answers and prepare a presentation for all participants.
The results can be presented and discussed in a common Zoom meeting or separately in each participating country.
