Topic: Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange and Internationalisation at home

This webinar presents the European Commission’s new programme, Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange and how universities can get involved in this initiative: http://europa.eu

We will begin with a brief explanation of what is meant by Virtual Exchange and how it can foster the development of students’ transversal skills such as intercultural communicative competence, digital literacies, foreign language ability. We will then illustrate how the Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange initiative can contribute to universities’ internationalisation programmes by promoting a range of opportunities to their students, and professional development for lecturers and staff.
