Video web conferencing is a unique tool that can be used to enhance international learning and collaboration for both faculty and students. Web conferencing can increase international engagement of faculty in real time regardless of their location. Web conferencing can also provide students synchronous learning opportunities with students across the world. This international engagement exposes faculty and students to social justice issues in a multicultural world. Web conferencing can be used in existing COIL courses as well as non-COIL courses regardless of where students and faculty are located.
In this interactive lab, participants will be introduced to two web conferencing tools that can be used to enhance existing COIL and non-COIL courses to create synchronous international learning opportunities. The presenters will conduct a web conferencing meeting during the session to demonstrate the features of each platform. The presenters will also show how technology is currently used to connect students and faculty in various geographical regions for teaching, consultation, and collaboration. This lab will provide participants an opportunity to brainstorm additional ways to use video web conferencing to enhance international learning across disciplines to promote social justice across the world.
