Abstract

The icollab12 project is the second iteration of an international collaboration built on the establishment of an international lecturer community of practice (COP). This COP is made up of like-minded higher education researchers and practitioners interested in exploring the potential of mobile social media as a catalyst for pedagogical change. This was reified in 2012 by the development of a project where students formed teams of mobile social media reporters creating rich media reports of the use of mobile social media in their cities. These stu-dent-generated reports were then shared with other student groups in four dif-ferent countries spanning the globe (NZ, UK, ES, DE).
