  • FRAMES collaborative online training on Virtual Exchange and blended mobility integration - Registration is open

    The FRAMES Consortium is happy to announce the upcoming ’Collaborative online Training on Virtual Exchange and blended mobility integration’.
    This training is of specific interest for International Relations Office staff and related offices (mobility officers, educational offer, career offices), IT staff, management and educational leaders as well as academic staff of any interested higher education institution.
    The training course aims to develop the participants’ capacity to design, implement, assess and multiply relevant mobility schemes enriched by Virtual Exchange (VE). As such, this training course does not focus on VE project design, but rather on the opportunities linked to the integration and accreditation of this innovative pedagogy in the curriculum and within the institutional strategies. Staff from any departments or university units/offices who might be involved in the implementation and integration of VE at Higher Education level are more than welcome! The approach adopted is namely a combination of a top-down and a bottom-up approach.
    Deadline to register: April 25, 2022
