About the Conference

IVEC 2019 is the largest and most prominent event on virtual exchange, providing a forum for an audience of practitioners, professionals, and policy makers from institutions around the world interested in technology, international education, and new pedagogies. 

Virtual exchange (also known as Collaborative Online International Learning (COIL), Globally Networked Learning, or Telecollaboration) extends authentic opportunities for intercultural and transnational learning to students within the curriculum of college and university classrooms.  Through co-developed and co-taught modules, virtual exchange supports the development of 21st-century workforce skills and provides opportunities for applied learning experiences.

Hosted by the University of Washington Bothell and Tacoma campuses and supported by the State University of New York (SUNY) COIL Center, DePaul University, UNICollaboration, Drexel University, and East Carolina University, the International Virtual Exchange Conference is the premier event in this growing field. The hosts and supporting institutions each bring with them many years of experience developing, teaching, and researching virtual exchange.  

We appreciate our Gold Level sponsor, the University of Washington Office of Global Affairs! To become a conference sponsor, visit the Sponsorship section of the website.
