This paper presents an educational case study of Media Culture 2020, an EU Erasmus Intensive Programme (EU ERASMUS project number 2012-1-FI1-ERA10-09673) that utilised a range of social media platforms and interactive computer software to create open, virtual learning environments where students from different countries and fields could explore and learn together. The multi-disciplinary project featured five universities from across Europe: the University of Vic (Spain), Tampere University of Applied Sciences (Finland), Liepaja University (Latvia), the University of Lincoln (United Kingdom) and HKU Hilversum (Netherlands) – and was designed to develop new pedagogical frameworks that might encourage collaborative approaches to teaching and learning. This paper will focus primarily on the implementation of a number of digital tools during the pre-workshop phase, in addition to highlighting the key educational aspects of the project.
