There is a growing need for virtual international learning (or ‘virtual study abroad’). I’ve recently found myself thinking a lot about remote ways to connect people from different cultures. Where could large-scale virtual international learning make an impact?
I am an anthropology professor, writer, researcher and global traveler. In fall of 2021, I led an experiential eLearning project connecting US students (and others) with the people, places, and industries of Greenland. I redesigned a research trip into a virtual field trip for my students who didn't have any Study Abroad options. All of the videos, photos, interviews, and storytelling are still here to enjoy!
