IMPORTANT NOTE ON DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME:
Daylight Savings Time (DST) BEGINS soon for many countries in our program. The countries listed below will soon be “springing forward” one hour. For all countries not observing Daylight Savings Time, your class time will most likely be ONE HOUR EARLIER than your usual time, for your links with countries.
Below are the two dates that indicate when DST begins for the following countries (university abbreviations will be listed by each country). Please note these dates and email your linking partners to make sure you both understand the changes in class time:
United States of America (ECU)
Czech Republic (ZCU)
United Kingdom (UCLAN)
Mexico (UDEM, UR)
Daylight Savings Time is a complication that we confront each semester, and due to excellent, continued communication between our partner countries, we are able to keep class time smooth and remain on schedule. Please make every effort to keep in close touch with your linking partners as we move closer to the DST changes, and be aware of any changes that you might need to make for your classes.
