Abstract

This article is an evaluation of the journey undertaken by participants on the Continuing Intercultural Professional Development in Europe (CIPDE) project, 2007-2009. The project provided participants with opportunities for online learning in order to facilitate reflection on practice and educational contexts. The contention is that the co-construction of shared meanings lies at the very heart of the process of intercultural learning, creating a shared culture of ideas. The article examines the participants' views on the impact of the project on their own learning. It also provides some insights as to the strengths and limitations of online learning across national boundaries.
