The Asia Pacific Virtual Exchange Association is dedicated to bringing the students of this vast region closer together via virtual exchange.
The third biennial APVEA conference will be held from May 18-19, 2019, at Hangzhou Dianzi University - Xiasha campus, China.
The position paper on virtual exchange created by the INTENT project group states that "Virtual exchanges are technology-enabled, sustained, people to people education programs. These entail the engagement of groups of students in online intercultural exchange, interaction and collaboration with peers from partner classes in geographically distant locations, under the guidance of educators and/or expert facilitators."
APVEA aims to promote virtual exchanges within the Asia Pacific. APVEA also aims to work with educators to improve the quality of these exchanges and research the most effective ways for them to ensure language and cultural development and understanding occurs.
