The emergence and global spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has caused broad global societal changes, including the cessation of in-person university classes and the conversion of classes to virtual instruction.

A growing number of higher education institutions in Angola, Brazil, Ecuador, Germany, Ghana, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Morocco, Norway, South Africa, the United Arab Emirates, the United States, and more than 50 additional countries are engaging in virtual exchange/collaborative online international learning (COIL) to keep international education resilient while more traditional forms of physical mobility and academic exchange continue to remain suspended.

Please join this interactive session to learn from thought leaders about the state of this critical practice, emerging issues, and research data needs of the emerging global higher education virtual exchange community. Audience participation will be infused throughout the webinar discussion.
