Virtually Connecting (VC, http://virtuallyconnecting.org/
) is a volunteer-driven international community movement that expands the reach and experience of academic conferences to those unable to attend in person. While virtual conferences center on content and presentations, VC uses simple group video conferencing to inclusively bring the valuable and informal hallway conversations between sessions, operating under principles of intentionally equitable hospitality. In this session, the presenters share how this unstructured, conversational format works with classes where experts are not brought in to lecture to students but rather to have intentionally equitable conversations. This will be a live session run in the same mode, tapping into a global network.
