Due to the Corona virus, the physical mobility part of internationalization has come to a grinding halt. A time of crisis is also a good moment to reflect on the achievements in the past: how have we performed over the last few years? And how can we move on from here?
Wellantcollege is leading a mobility consortium, a group of 4 green VET institutions that jointly apply for Erasmus+ subsidy from the European Commission and are committed to internationalization in education and training.
Have a look at the infographic below to learn the key facts and figures of our Erasmus+ mobilities in the recent years.
Internationalization at home
Due to strict restrictions of physical mobility, current figures are lagging behind recent years and aspirations. But international cooperation is also key to get out of this crisis. That is why we’re looking for ways to cooperate internationally without physical mobility so we can continue offering internationalization opportunities for students and staff.
This can be done, for example, with eTwinning, or by incorporating virtual exchange and COIL (Collaborative Online International Learning), where students from different cultures enroll in shared courses and collaborate online.
