  • Level: All

Two and a half years into the pandemic, the debate is still raging about the effectiveness of gaining international experience online. Have Collaborative Online International Learning and other forms of online learning delivered on their promises to increase and extend outreach to a wider group of students? Or does the dramatic upswing in student demand for physical student mobility prove otherwise? In this session, a panel will pitch both sides of the argument for the audience to vote on.
