The development of Information and Communications Technology (ICT) enabled the creation of educational programs without spatial or temporal limitations, which have allowed greater access to specialised content. In the current context of crisis and urgency, the face-to-face educational model has been suddenly transposed to a virtual setting. At the same time, there’s room to improve and to take full advantage of the potential offered by ICT.
Virtual mobility enables cultural exchanges, the transfer of resources between countries and the establishment of knowledge networks without having to travel between countries. However, virtual mobility still faces challenges that require the use and creation of technological tools to allow an enriching and trustful experience that permits the students to share the experiences mobility can offer fully.
The objective of this webinar is to discuss the future of virtual mobility and cooperation in education, exploring the already existing best practices. The intercontinental diversity of speakers enables a discussion on inclusive internationalisation and the possibility of establishing an international accreditation system.
Charlotte Grawitz, Regional Representative of Euraxess in Latin America, will moderate the discussion between Shen Xuesong, Deputy Secretary-General of the China Education Association For International Exchange; Patrício Marinho, Science and Technology Analyst at CAPES Brasil; George Ubachs, Managing Director of the European Association of Distance Teaching Universities; Rahel Aschwanden, CEO of Instituto Now; and Laurin Reding, Project Manager at Movetia.
This webinar is part of a series of events leading to the construction of a global virtual program fostering worldwide student collaboration for Leadership & Sustainability. Please find more information here.
