This discussion will focus on the use of the innovative technology of a virtual classroom and describe how it is being used in initial teacher training to create a safe place for students to practice pedagogical skills and deal with difficult conversations. This pilot project at Bath Spa University is the first time in the UK that hundreds of initial teacher trainees across several programmes will use this technology. We will discuss how this technology is currently being used and how it could be used to enhance intercultural learning and teaching.
