Connect Zurich and Izmir - an experimental students' project

do'r waste my energy - save-energy.tipsThe ZürIzmir partner class project was an ambitious one in the sense of having differences in culture, language, education and infrastructure but also in respect of a relatively short time frame.

The students had the opportunity to do team research on self chosen environmental topics and experience that communication between team members (or from Zurich or from Izmir) can be a challenge. However, after having succeeded this experimental project and looking back, some lessons can be drawn for a next partner class project.

Swirls - more than best wishes from su-pa for 2018

How to Swirl ?

Go to www.swirls.fun, move the things around with your mouse or fingers and see what happens!

Admittedly started as a little "Happy-new-year-experiment" for you & us: "Wet, breezy, fiery, down-to-earth - the elements can be elegantly moved quite as how one might wish in everyday life."

Introduction to Sicilian Gestures

Imagine you’re on a trip in Sicily ...

Your friend, a native Sicilian, invites you for a coffee in a bar. After a while you’re leaving together and your friend seems to be very amused. Why? What has happened during your short coffee break? He explains: „With gestures and glances everyone in the bar wondered who you are, asked where you came from, if we’re related, etc. Moreover, I caught the newest gossip about love affairs, disputes, etc. Whoever is familiar with the nuances of body language understands a situation as being sympathetic or suspect within the blink of an eye.

Why so many gestures in Sicily?

It’s difficult to say exactly when and how Sicilian body language has developed. One reason might be found in Siciliy’s dynamic history and its geographical position in the Mediterranean. During the past More...

Gestures in Sicily / La Gestualità dei Siciliani

English: Sweet as a kiss.
Deutsch: Zum Küssen. Einfach süss!
繁中 (Chinese):  甜姐兒 !
