Virtual exchange (VE) enables students and faculty to connect online across national borders and campuses to engage in synchronous and asynchronous project-based activities to examine global issues and problem-solving from diverse perspectives. Through these experiences, students develop intercultural skills as well as new perspectives both on the subject material and on themselves. The mode is digital, the collaboration is real!
The University of Göttingen has been actively engaged in various virtual exchange initiatives for several years and regards these as a valuable and forward-looking expansion of the university’s global engagement.
Below you will find information about the university’s initiatives in this area, virtual exchange courses for students, and resources and information for faculty interested in becoming involved with virtual exchange.
