Virtual Exchange in International Teaching

HTW Berlin supports teachers and students wishing to organise virtual exchange and virtual learning projects in cooperation with international partner institutions. The term "Virtual Exchange" comprises a range of different formats, where international students collaborate in a virtual setting and with the help of digital tools on specific assignments. Examples of such formats include Virtual Global Classroom, Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL), and Blended Intensive Programmes (BIP).

Objectives of Virtual Exchange

  • to establish new formats of digital learning and teaching, to expand those already at hand, and to strengthen international networks
  • to improve the possibilities for non-mobile students to participate in international exchange and to promote intercultural sensitivities among all participants
  • further development of digital and methodological skills in online learning in an international context
  • sustainable establishment of our academic strategy „Internationalisation at Home“ and advancement of our local education program
