Expanding perspectives: Virtual Exchange and COIL international teaching and learning

Hybrid Event: FH Campus Wien University of Applied Sciences, Favoritenstrasse 226, 1100 Vienna and online

In the summer semester of 2024, FH Campus Wien University of Applied Sciences will host the first INUAS COIL Days. The event will centre around the practical implementation of Virtual Exchange/COIL (Collaborative Online International Learning) projects. Participants will have the opportunity to get together with colleagues from other INUAS universities (FH Campus Wien University of Applied Sciences, Hochschule München University of Applied Sciences, Zurich University of Applied Sciences) as well as some of our international partner universities, and to exchange their knowledge and experiences of implementing Virtual Exchange in the classroom. Participants will be shown practical examples by colleagues and will receive input from COIL experts to help them internationalise their own teaching and to find ideas and partners for future COIL projects.
