With the emergence and global spread of the COVID-19 pandemic there has been broad global societal changes, including the cessation of in-person university classes and the conversion of classes to virtual instruction.
A growing number of higher education institutions in Angola, Brazil, Ecuador, Germany, Ghana, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Norway, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates, the United States and an additional 50 plus countries are engaging in virtual exchange to keep international education resilient when more traditional forms of physical mobility and academic exchange continue to remain suspended.
Please join this ACE Virtual Exchange COIL Lab session to learn from thought leaders about the state of this critical practice, emerging issues, and research data needs of the emerging global higher education virtual exchange community. Audience participation will be infused throughout the webinar discussion.
