Abstract: This article centers on a research-based, fully online course that has been created to maximise the intercultural learning and engagement of international exchange students while they are in the host country. Guided critical reflection and meaning-making are core elements in this interactive intercultural intervention. After providing an overview of the theoretical and pedagogical foundation, the remainder of the paper focuses on an evaluative, mixed-method case study of one of the offerings. The findings draw attention to the challenges and benefits of designing and implementing a course of this nature, and suggest aspects to improve in subsequent offerings. The case study highlights the constructive impact that eLearning and intercultural mentoring can have on international educational experience.
