Masterclass: How to enrich online teaching activities in higher education through Virtual Exchanges
March 26, 2020
Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange has organised this morning a Masterclass to explore how activities can be offered to students and how they can be integrated in university courses and will present the practical opportunities offered by the European Union’s Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange initiative to engage professors and students in meaningful, safe and rewarding online collaboration activities.
Due to the limitations imposed by the present COVID-19 outbreak, the majority of universities in Europe and globally are presently working to implement online teaching activities, exploring tools and methods that can guarantee continuous engagement of students as well as their active participation. One approach that can help deliver online learning is Virtual Exchange.
Erasmus+ Virtual Exchange is part of the Erasmus+ programme. It offers a safe online community to participate in facilitated discussions, increasing intercultural awareness and building 21st Century skills through Virtual Exchange. The programme encourages and promotes intercultural dialogue, employability, and citizenship, strengthening the youth dimension of the EU neighbourhood policy.
