Virtual Learner Centred Approaches for Diversity in Learning: Recent Experiments With a Blog and Wiki

Walter Baets, Euromed Marseille Ecole de Management, recently deposited in SSRN Virtual Learner Centred Approaches for Diversity in Learning: Recent Experiments With a Blog and Wiki. Here's the abstract for this interesting study:

Co-creation in diversity is today a matter of necessity, not choice. Sustainable value creation cannot be seen independently from the economic culture in which it should blossom. Textbooks and learning approaches are indeed highly context bound. However, different learning approaches, translating cultural diversity, can seriously enrich mutual learning. In this contribution, a different pedagogical model is proposed, that allows not only to host diversity in learning, but even more so that allows to learn from diversity. CoPs (communities of practice) are used as an integral part of the pedagogical model. This model advances the notion of diversity as an asset of outstanding value, within any given economic reality.
