Borderless Classrooms?: Virtual Exchanges for Language and Culture Courses

Telecollaboration tools can foster global engagement and authentic communicative contexts by putting students in direct contact with representatives of other cultures and languages. While the potential of such connections to enhance student motivation, language proficiency, and intercultural competence seems great, the startup and class-to-class costs can be daunting. In this webinar, we will draw on recent projects at Connecticut College to reflect on the benefits and challenges of virtual exchanges, and share our emerging inventory of best practices. The session will also consider how to find appropriate partners and to foster productive reciprocal relationships.
