About this session

Virtual exchange is now an established pedagogy for intercultural learning in higher education. However, scale-up and embedding of VE at the institutional level requires support and professional development for academic staff. This session will focus on VE implementation, comparing three institutions at different stages of development. We will explore the intercultural, interdisciplinary and institutional challenges in onboarding academics, and we will engage you in a lively discussion.
