We’re Virtually Connecting from the UNICollaboration conference in Krakow, Poland April 25-27th 2018.
UNICollaboration (www.unicollaboration.org) is a young, cross-disciplinary organisation which aims to promote practice and research in virtual exchange initiatives in Higher Education. Virtual exchange is an innovative form of online learning which involves engaging learners in intercultural interaction and collaboration with classes in distant locations through online communication technologies under the guidance of teachers or trained facilitators. It is also known in different contexts as telecollaboration, Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) and e-tandem learning.
