Session Description: Coronavirus-related disruptions to international education mobility have led to a dramatic expansion of virtual exchange opportunities across the field. During this roundtable conversation, we engage directly with the audience intended to benefit from virtual exchange: students. Recent participants of virtual programs share their perspective on what the experience was like, skills and knowledge they gained, as well as recommendations for students and administrators considering these types of opportunities. Program coordinators from the Collective also share insights about virtual exchange best practices.
