The LTTC has been and continues to be involved in a number of international projects. These have included:
DIT staff from the Faculty of Applied Arts (School of Media and Dept. of Social Sciences), in collaboaration with Unicef, have developed an online resource for journalists looking at the issue of children's rights and journalism. The online delivery is facilitated by the Learning, Teaching and Technology Centre, incorporating a website and a password-protected Moodle site.
The objective of the module is to provide the trainee journalist with the concepts and the information that will help him/her to develop responsible news reporting skills that appreciate and respect children's rights.
Check out the website for more information http://ceecis.org/syllabus/Currently the module is available in both Turkish and English. Lecturers at several Turkish universities have been working with DIT staff to ensure that best practices are followed when introducing the module to journalism students across Turkey.
The Minerva project, with partners London Metropolitan and Sofia Universities, aimed to support trainee science teachers and their mentors/tutors, to identify themes that would be enhanced by multimedia as a way to establish national and transnational links among trainee science teachers and to develop appropriate multimedia materials to use with teachers and pupils.
The project produced an online subject portal of reusable peer reviewed learning objects in Physics and Chemistry. These were selected to provide secondary school teachers with relevant, appropriate and timely resources to support their teaching.
