Open SIG webinar: Keeping international classrooms alive through virtual mobility

Date: November 3, 2021, 13.00-15.00

Venue: Online via Zoom

Fee: Free and open to all


In times of the pandemic, physical international mobility at universities has been restricted. National political decisions (e.g. in Denmark) are putting further limitations on the international classroom. In this interactive online workshop, the participants will share strategies and tools for enabling students and staff to be involved in the international classroom whether or not they can physically cross national borders. Two PhD researchers will share recent research findings on the conception and practice of virtual exchange. There will also be a discussion on how strategies of international presence via digital means (virtual mobility) can be integrated into the curriculum and classroom practices.

The workshop will include:

  1. Introduction
  2. Keynote: Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) and Virtual Exchange by Anna Prisca Lohse, Hertie School, Berlin, Germany and Mark Dawson, Coventry University, UK
  3. Examples of current curricular and classroom practices of virtual internationalisation
  4. Sharing and discussing practices in groups
  5. Collecting and disseminating practices
  6. Take-aways and next steps

The workshop is organised by two special interest groups within the Danish Network for Educational Development in Higher Education: Link Arrow TLIC - Teaching and Learning in the International Classroom and Link Arrow HEPP - Higher Education Policy and Practice.
