Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


International study travel within the tertiary education framework provides students invaluable formative experiences. The current COVID-19 pandemic has put a halt to these excursions, side-lining the valuable learning outcomes that are specific to international immersive study opportunities. This paper explores how the benefits of these trips could be transferred to an online teaching environment. The potential to increase collaborative cultural exchange through media and technology coursework contexts will be discussed. Potential barriers are also considered. The discussion paper draws on the experiences of the authors as lecturers involved in preparing and executing study trips situated in Japan prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.
