Presentation title
Scoping review of virtual exchange programs during Covid-19 in Asia Pacific
Presentation abstract
In last two decades, there has been a number of successful online collaborative learning programs among Asia Pacific universities particularly in global topics such as climate change (Barrett, 2016). However, until Covid19 pandemic, the potentials of these projects have not been explored widely both in practice and research. Today, many successful cases can be found in leading institutions in the region that shift their international collaborative programs online or collectively launch new VEL programs in response to the pandemic (e.g. APRU Virtual Student Exchange project). This paper first presents preliminary result of scoping review of virtual exchange and virtual mobility programs in Asia Pacific region, and their approaches to measure the effectiveness based on published articles, reports, and website information. Second, the paper will present a case of Japanese national university embracing virtual programs as alternative to physical mobility programs, and the challenges faced during implementation.
