I don't think so as this would not change the data that is already there.

AFAIK, the "correct" way is -- for each field you want to change:

rename the field (alter table alter <yourfieldname> to <tempfieldname>)
create the field with new charset/collation (alter table add <yourfieldname>
pump data from old field (<tempfieldname>) to new field (<yourfieldname>)
drop the old field (alter table drop <tempfieldname>)
