Rethinking International Exchange with Digital

How can the digital world help to expand international education experiences for students? What are the challenges and how could educators overcome them?

The latest publication by Switzerland’s global innovation network Swissnex and Movetia, the Swiss Agency for the promotion of exchanges and mobility in education, explores those questions in a new publication. Outcome of an online roundtable with diverse international education professionals, the publication provides best practices, case studies, resources, and inspiration to guide educators and administrators to advocate for, launch, measure, and maintain successful digital international exchange.

“Whether forced by the pandemic or in response to the climate change debate, Higher Education institutions are rethinking and reinventing how to exchange with their peers worldwide.

We do not believe that virtual exchanges will, or should replace physical mobility. But virtual or digital exchange formats need to be explored more deeply and systematically, as they offer additional, more sustainable and inclusive avenues to interact with people and institutions worldwide”
