Integrate Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange in your courses: examples and opportunities
16 June 2020, at 11:00 am – 12:30 pm CET
The Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange initiative of the European Commission has reached over 20,000 participants since its start in 2018, and established more than 250 partnerships with universities and youth organisations across 44 countries. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the growing need for online opportunities, the project is now attracting an increased interest from stakeholders, since Virtual Exchange represents both a way to sustain intercultural collaboration in times of social distancing and an innovatine online learning method.
The webinar “Integrate Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange in your courses: examples and opportunities” aims to present to university professors and International Relation Officers the upcoming opportunities of Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange. During the webinar, experts from the Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange team will explain how to integrate the opportunities offered by the initiatives in the educational offer of universities and will provide examples of successful Virtual Exchange implementation in universities from Europe and the South Mediterranean.
