Sustaining International Partnerships Using Project‐Based Virtual Exchange Curricula

This panel considers how virtual exchange can be integrated into a wider international partnership between universities to allow flexibility in delivering a meaningful intercultural experience. Panelists will address the logistics and benefits of multi‐media project‐based learning in virtual exchange courses and in hybrid virtual exchange/face‐to‐face study abroad based on experiences teaching project‐centered virtual exchange classes during the pandemic. The members of the panel include professors of communication and literature from PDEU University in Gandhinagar, India and SHU University in Connecticut. The panel will include time for workshopping, during which participants and attendees will discuss how desired learning outcomes drive virtual exchange projects and course design and consider the logistics of facilitating multi‐media projects across time zones using new technologies.
