Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

In the Fall 2016 issue of the IIENetworker magazine, Leslie Bozeman and Yao-Yi Fu of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) discuss that while participation in study abroad is key to preparing students to enter the global workforce, it’s also important to recognize the ways in which universities can provide international opportunities for students who are not well-positioned to study abroad because of financial constraints, work, or other circumstances. "Curriculum internationalization through virtual exchange provides a valuable opportunity for student and faculty development. [...] Faculty benefits can include enhancing their scope of disciplinary knowledge, widening their pool of research collaborators, and enriching their own professional interactions through intercultural interaction," write Bozeman and Fu.
