Event: Growing International Virtual Exchange: The Case for Virtual Exchange
While international travel and study abroad programs will be limited for the foreseeable future, Virtual Exchange provides meaningful global experiences here and now.
There is a fundamental need for students of all backgrounds and abilities to access global experiences at home, whether they can study abroad or not. All students deserve to practice 21st century digital literacy skills, to build career skills like collaboration and teamwork, to communicate with diverse international groups, to be part of this vastly interconnected world, and to be empowered to participate in the evolution of technology and communication that we are experiencing at this very moment.
The University System of Georgia, Atlanta Global Studies Center and Clemson's Office of Global Engagement invite leaders in higher education to a workshop about Growing International Virtual Experiences. Join us to learn how to sustain global education in an accessible and inclusive way, both now and in the future. Discover how academia can invest in virtual experiences for the 21st century.
