The pandemic has catapulted the use of virtual education and exchange to the mainstream. But do virtual exchanges really work? Relatively little research has been done in this emerging area, and almost none with K-12 learners.

This International Education Week, join the Stevens Initiative and AFS Intercultural to discuss preliminary results from one of  the first of seven independent  research projects examining issues in virtual exchange design and practice. With funding from the Stevens Initiative, AFS looked into the efficacy of virtual exchange in strengthening high school students’ global competence by analyzing the AFS Global You Adventurer program. Attendees will get a first look at preliminary research results, insights into what makes a virtual exchange effective, and practical implementation advice from industry experts.

This webinar is hosted by AFS and the Stevens Initiative. Registrant information will be accessed and used by AFS and the Stevens Initiative leading up to and following the webinar.
