The World in Conversation project has taken its face-to-face dialogues across the ocean so Penn State students can engage students in the Middle East. The presenters were initially reluctant to use videoconferencing technology because they saw the barriers it presented as impossible to overcome if they wished to meet the standards of face-to-face conversations. While things have not always gone smoothly, the presenters have been pleasantly surprised at their ability to have meaningful conversations that shift how students see their worlds and those of their conversation partners. Attendees can participate in a short conversation with students in the Middle East.
