SOME RESULTS OF THE RESEARCH CONDUCTED AT THE UNIVERSITY OF SILESIA IN THE FRAMEWORK OF THE INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH NETWORK IRNET
Eugenia Smyrnova-Trybulska (Poland)
 
Abstract: This article presents a number of results of the research conducted within the European IRNet Project: International Research Network for study and development of new tools and methods for advanced pedagogical science in the field of ICT instruments, e-learning and intercultural competences. In the research described a tool was used to retrieve data on students’ beliefs and expectations about ICT-enhanced learning, and their emerging needs for intercultural development. The expected result was an analysis of the students’ views and attitudes towards various educational processes within the scope of their academic study, entailing ICT, intercultural and professional competences.
The study targets students from Poland and from other partner countries. The retrieved data in the research have allowed to explore the state of the art in ICT-, learning- and intercultural competences. On top of that, cross-cultural analyses will be conducted and will be compared with results, received by partners from other countries. At a later stage of project research (Work Package 2 - Work Package 7 (www.irnet.us.edu.pl) recommendations for Higher Education in the included countries will be formulated.
Keywords: e-learning, international research network IRNet, IT, e-learning and global competences, survey, educational process
