What is virtual mobility?
For most people in higher education mobility means exchange programmes and travel. However today there are digital tools and communities that enable rich virtual collaboration for both teachers and students. This is called virtual mobility and has been the subject of several international initiatives over the last 5 years.
Virtual mobility/exchange in higher education is an activity of learning, teaching, researching, communicating and collaborating, characterised by the following features: development of intercultural competence, cooperation of higher education institutions, application of appropriate technology supported learning and teaching solutions, and aiming at achieving academic goals and recognition of the achieved learning outcomes.

In this webinar you will learn about virtual mobility and how it is being used today in Europe to enable staff and students to participate in international projects, courses and networks.
