This resource embeds the use of online collaboration tools and 21st century learning skills to support students studying the 100-hour mandatory Stage 4 or 100/200 elective Stage 5 Indonesian courses. Students work collaboratively to research a topic of cultural interest in Indonesia and make a presentation (digital and/or face-to-face) that demonstrates their learning. They investigate key Indonesian words (Stage 4) and conduct an Indonesian Q&A interview (Stage 5) related to their chosen topic.
