Virtual Exchange programmes connect international teachers and students from different geographical regions, in hands-on projects.
In these online formats students can engage in intercultural teamwork, practice international cooperation and deepen their understanding about culture and intercultural communication.
Virtual exchange workshops:
Culture, Communication, Museums
This course introduces you to topics of museum information and intercultural communication. Together with students from St. John's University in New York/USA, you will explore the connections of culture and communication through gamification and the use of museum artifacts. Taken out of their original context, you will explore intercultural connections among a variety of museum artifacts within your intercultural teams, solve challenges and create your own online museum brochure that comprises your findings and insights throughout this intercultural virtual exchange.
