Abstract

This paper presents an educational case study of Media Culture 2020, an EU Erasmus Intensive Programme designed to explore what a decentralised, pan-European model of teaching and learning might look like. The multi-disciplinary project featured five universities from across Europe, utilising a range of social media platforms and computer software to create open, virtual spaces where students from different countries and fields could collaborate and learn together. In doing so, MC2020 sought to develop a new pedagogical framework that traversed cultural and geographic boundaries, combining a range of skills and experiences to form collaborative, multinational creative partnerships. The main objective of the project was to break down classroom and campus walls by creating an open learning environment that would facilitate the production, transmission and representation of new knowledge. The aim, then, was to explore how educational practices might respond to the convergence of digital media, as well as the internationalisation of media production and business.
