Send Me On My Way: Global Engagements In A Virtual World
Global immersion and experiential learning are valuable elements of university programs, as they provide ‘real world’ experiences and unique perspectives for student growth. Yet, COVID-19 have placed constraints on how to develop and deliver these types of engagements. In this session, we describe three types of virtual global engagements, including a guest lecture, a mini study abroad, and an internship. The session will include a simulation of an abroad engagement, reflections from participants, and recommendations for developing customizable engagements. At the end of the session, participants will be able to apply a framework for designing distinctive virtual global immersion experiences.
