Abstract

Discussion of an internation initiative involving universities in the UK and the USA focuses attention on how the use of online technologies can evolve alongside current learning and teaching practices in higher education, thus enhancing student communication. The aims of the initiative were fourfold: to change modes of student communication (individual and group), to develop students' potential to think across cultural and national borders, to extend their communication across such borders, and to develop students' ICT mediated interactional skills. The paper concludes that, although the students involved in this project study criminology and criminal justice, its structure and principes are transferrable to other disciplines
