Abstract: “Hospitality” is an essential element of intercultural pedagogy that informs synchronous collaborative online courses. As a conceptual foundation and a practical strategy, hospitality is the competency developed by such courses. The co-hosting unique to this pedagogy requires reciprocal and mutual interactions between institutions as well as among participating teachers and students. All participants are simultaneously visitors and foreigners in relation to each other. The reflections of this panel are based on an ongoing project.
