Wofford MENA Virtual Exchange

Project Description

Wofford College will scale up a classroom virtual exchange pilot to integrate the exchange across disciplines, supplement it with research resources, expand the project’s reach, and conduct thorough impact evaluation. In addition to creating training modules for instructors and facilitating live exchanges between students, Wofford will publish a comprehensive library-generated research guide for virtual exchange activities.
