Presentation title
Students' readiness to experience virtual exchange
Presentation abstract
Virtual exchange brings many benefits to the participants, including the development of their intercultural competence, language skills, ICT dexterity, and personality. However, the impact of the VE depends on their overall maturity and readiness to face a new situation. Despite the teachers' effort, the effect of the VE may be far below the expectations. The reason for that is students' lack of openness to new experience and their inability to understand the context of the process occurring during the virtual collaboration. The goal of this paper is to describe students’ attitudes toward the virtual exchange, with the focus on the differences between students voluntarily taking part in VE projects and those who joined obligatory VE projects embedded in their academic courses. The analysis is based on over 15 projects between students from Cracow University of Economics (Poland) and partners from India, Japan, Tunisia, Brazil, Spain, and Australia. The results will help to prepare students to fully benefit from future VE.
