Virtual and blended mobility from a rather conceptual perspective – Mrs Filippini
Mobility is at the hearth of the Una Europa alliance from the beginning. We have an ambitious goal for 2025: 50% of UNA Europa students will benefit from physical mobility and 100% will be able to participate in international online and blended learning.
In order to achieve this goal, our alliance has developed an integrated methodology, based both in the continuous connection among the mobility professionals and with the academic representatives of each strategic area. With this methodology, we have been able to map existing good practices in physical, virtual and blended mobility for all target groups (students, teachers, staff). Besides, it has been possible to identify some gaps and at the same time propose new models from scratch. All these results are condensed in the so-called MOBILITY MATRIX.
Moreover, in the middle of the Covid-emergency, the Una Europa Alliance was able to transform the threat in an opportunity and this is how the “Mobility in Emergency” concept was born. Thanks to this model, several students are right now able to follow the online lessons of the partner universities with the possibility to get credit recognition.
