This webinar focuses on the practice of international virtual learning engagements that take place in Malaysian and Japanese International Higher Education Institutions(HEI). The Covid-19 pandemic has required many HEIs to strategize the delivery of education by incorporating technology-based learning. Programs such as Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL) and Virtual Exchange had been in existence way before the pandemic. The awareness and interest in this form of activities have recently increased as HEI finds the need to have alternatives and solutions in sustaining internationalization. Many have also developed international creative activities and programs such as international virtual summer programs, short-term programs, or chat and interaction-based activities to ensure intercultural learning and internationalization still continues. All in all, this webinar will share the experiences and strategies of the panelists in offering international virtual learning programs at their respective universities, their collaborative efforts with partner universities, and also their conceptualization of international virtual learning activities.
