International Virtual Exchange Conference: Towards Digital Equality in Internationalization
IVEC is the largest and most prominent event on virtual exchange, providing a forum for an audience of deans, directors, faculty, instructional designers, administrators, and professionals from institutions around the world interested in technology, international education, and new pedagogies. Our last conference welcomed over 350 attendees from 28 countries around the world!
Virtual exchange (also known as Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL), Globally Networked Learning, or Telecollaboration) extends authentic opportunities for intercultural and transnational learning to students within the curriculum of college and university classrooms. Through co-developed and co-taught modules, virtual exchange supports the development of 21st-century workforce skills and provides opportunities for applied learning experiences.
IVEC 2020 will be hosted by Newcastle University and is supported by the State University of New York (SUNY) COIL Center, DePaul University, UNICollaboration, Drexel University, University of Washington Bothell, and East Carolina University. The International Virtual Exchange Conference is the premier event in this growing field, and the supporting institutions each bring with them many years of experience developing, teaching, and researching virtual exchange.
