About this session

Pilot virtual internship and virtual experience learning programmes developed during the COVID-19 pandemic have shown that intercultural and international learning can be successfully delivered ‘at home’. The skills students develop in virtual experiences are highly relevant for today’s digital workplace, and virtual programmes enable greater participation from students from poorer backgrounds. In this session, we’ll discuss the benefits and challenges of virtual approaches.
