You can view these posts here on Twitter: and on Instagram by clicking here.
Ø Two publications were being prepared by using the project results.
Ø The coordinator of the project and three researchers attended the “Sustainability and Dissemination Event” conducted by the National Agency in Ankara on 20.12.2019.A poster presentation was prepared and shared with the participants.
Ø A project dissemination presentation was given to instructors working at İstanbul Technical University, School of Foreign Languages on 25.12.2020 to disseminate the project results within the institution.
Ø The project dissemination was done in the 7 transnational meetings, two short-term training events and 2 conferences held.
Ø Most of the transnational meetings and the two international conferences were made news on ITU EU Centre Bulletin.
Ø The project coordinator Prof. Dr. Lale Tükenmez Ergene was interviewed at the end of the project by ITU EU Centre and this was also published as “A Success Story from our Institution” in the ITU EU Centre Bulletin. Please click here to view the bulletin.
Ø The project researchers at Istanbul Technical University prepared an article for ITU Vakfı Journal which gave a comprehensive overviw of the project. You can access the journal by clicking here.
Ø Drawing on the experiences of the project, the University of Vienna will offer a teacher education module (1 semester 2hr course) on ESP teaching with VR, where future teachers of English will be addressed.
Ø Local at University of Vienna a Project Presentation IBEEVR and Project Progress Presentation was conducted. (EduLING group)
Ø Future dissemination is planned and confirmed by University of Vienna at the 10th UAS Austrian Language Instructors’ Conference held in May 2022 at the Competence Center for Business English at the FHWien der WKW, Vienna, Austria. For the link of the activity, please click here.
Ø An important impact at the Polytechnical University of Catalonia(UPC) is the creation and approval of a new 3-ects optional course based on the project materials that will be officially offered during the spring semester of 2021-22 on the Terrassa Campus (ETSEIAAT, UPC)
Ø Inside the UPC, the 4 UPC members explained to their students following their courses during the academic year 20-21 and the project was also mentioned and described to different members of the UPC community in private conversations. M. Aguilar was contacted by one of the staff responsible for teaching innovation at the UPC to gather information about the I-BEE-VR project as one of the innovative projects under way at the UPC.
Ø The project results were disseminated to members and partner universities of the T.I.M.E. (Top International Managers in Engineering) network by Ecole Centrale de Lille. This is an international cooperation of more than 50 top universities around the world. Further oral and written communications are planned.
o Conferences were advertised to our partner universities/HEI.
o The project was advertised in embassies, as well as governmental agencies (CampusFrance, Applications for specific scholarships, etc)
o Local governmental agencies were informed of the project.
o It is essential for Centrale Lille Institut to maintain a high visibility within institutional and governmental agencies, embassies, and professionals, which guarantees the legitimacy and adequacy of its teaching level, and the recognition of its efficient adaptability to the requirements of the professional and academic world.
Ø The project course was offered in 4 institutions, namely Istanbul Technical University (ITU), Ecole Centrale de Lille(ECL), Polytechnical University of Catalonia (UPC) and Pedagogical University of Krakow (UP). The reason why University of Vienna did not offer the course was the fact that they were not included in the piloting and the implementation work packages in the submitted project document due to the fact that they do not have access to engineering students.
Ø The project course platform Moodle has 110 registered users although it was used as a private platform during the project. It was only used by the students of ITU and all the instructors and researchers from the partnering institutions. It was also supervised by two supervisors of the project, namely Guzman-Mancho-Bares (University of Lleida) and Prof. Dr. Şebnem Burnaz (ITU). The platform was also used by the senior teachers who evaluated the course in order to help for the refinement. The course on this specific Moodle platform was copied and used on the institutional Moodle platform of UP and UPC. The Moodle platform is now open to any registered user and this will boost the number of the registered users and this will contribute to more students and teachers in their learning process.
Ø Other than the Moodle platform of the project course, the course materials are also available on the web page of the project which would increase the number of students and teachers who can access and use the course materials.
