Open Badges have just been issued and awarded to the successful participants in the Online Training on Virtual Exchange and blended mobility integration

More than 240 people registered to attend the online training, which was held between 2nd and 29th May 2022, and ca. 120 participants from all over the world were actively engaged throughout the course, sharing their experience and ideas about how to potentially integrate and accredit Virtual Exchange within their HEIs. Participants were both academic and administrative staff covering different positions and playing various roles at university level and represented various units and departments, and not only the central administration.

The very last assignment saw participants committed to draft individual/collective Action Plans on how to integrate VE within their institution in the next few years, and as many as 30 of them have submitted their Action Plans which are being revised by the course trainers in these weeks, so as to provide them with feedback.

The lively engagement and active contributions by most of the participants have led the FRAMES team to create a mailing list, to satisfy their request to keep in touch after the course lifetime.
