UNCW Virtual International Programs

UNCW’s Office of International Programs is collaborating with East Carolina University and the University Council on International Programs – UNC System to bring faculty a series of workshops on International Virtual Exchange.

Virtual Exchange provides students with meaningful, direct international experiences through the use of technology even in times when travel is limited. Through this six-part workshop series, participants will get an overview of how virtual exchange fits into a broader internationalization strategy and learn tangible approaches for how to develop and implement virtual exchange programming. Staff from Distance Education and the Office of International Programs are eager to support faculty who choose to develop virtual exchanges.
