Drawing on reflections by five lecturers involved in two collaborative online international learning (COIL) pilot interventions, this chapter aims at highlighting key learnings and challenges related to implementation of virtual mobility to engage students in online learning across institutions and continents to enhance global teaching. From the lecturers' perspectives, it will explore themes related to social justice pedagogy, global teaching and internationalization at home. The authors draw on Nancy Fraser's notions of social justice and participatory parity to reflect upon intercultural or global engagement in their COIL programs. They conclude with solutions and recommendations to strengthen participatory parity and social justice pedagogy in COIL programs focused on teacher development.
