Who are we?
Welcome to UNICollaboration.org, the website of a cross-disciplinary professional organisation for telecollaboration and virtual exchange in Higher Education. The organisation was launched at the Second Conference on Telecollaboration in Higher Education at Trinity College, Dublin in April 2016. UNICollaboration is also part of IVEC (International Virtual Exchange Conference) a consortium of prominent institutions that have come together to host an annual conference in Virtual Exchange.
UNICollaboration has two main objectives:
- to promote the development and integration of research and practice in telecollaboration and virtual exchange across all disciplines and subject areas in higher education
- to actively engage in awareness raising of telecollaboration and virtual exchange at institutional and policy making level
Read more about our background and objectives here.
Through this site we want to keep practitioners, researchers, policy makers and management informed of conferences, training opportunities, documents and policy developments relevant to our field.
Join our association as an individual or institutional member to help us promote telecollaboration and virtual exchange practice and research and further policy development in this area.
