Databases and Learning Activities
This part of the site includes several
different types of intercultural learning activities.
database includes diaries which students wrote while abroad and interviews
and focus groups conducted after their return, focusing on intercultural
issues. It can be used on its own by simply searching
the database, or the learning activities
on this site can be drawn on to use the database in a more structured
way. The database contains a large amount of data, and the learning
activities are designed to help students conduct their own research into
intercultural experience through searching the database in various ways.
The STEFE databases
developed at Homerton College, Cambridge include interviews and diaries
with French and British PGCE / Maîtrise students, who undergo their
teacher training both in France and in Britain. The learning activities
associated with this database focus on specific extracts from the data.

across in the course of our research.
