  • €209 (€319 for non-members)

Blended mobility and virtual exchange are becoming important elements of universities’ Internationalisation at Home strategies. Blended mobility is the combination of both physical mobility and virtual exchange in international programmes. The new Erasmus+ programme (2021–2027) promotes a form of blended mobility called Blended Intensive Programmes. These are short periods of physical mobility with a virtual component, facilitating collaborative online learning. The aim of this workshop is to familiarise participants with the concept of blended mobility and to develop a set of actions that both teachers and members of international offices can take to integrate this activity in their institutions.


At the end of this workshop, you’ll be able to:

  • explain what is meant by blended mobility and be able to give examples of each activity;
  • list the benefits of blended mobility projects;
  • outline a list of actions that members of international offices or university teachers can use to undertake a Blended Intensive Programme.

The course should be of interest to university teachers who are interested in internationalising their courses and also in preparing their students for the global workplace. The course will also be of interest to members of International Offices who are interested in promoting Blended Intensive Programmes as a form of internationalisation at their institutions.
