Abstract [en]

Despite many innovative initiatives, virtual mobility is still a relatively unexploited aspect of internationalisation at European universities. An internal project at Linnaeus university, Global Classroom, has aimed to create a framework and organisation to establish international networking and online collaboration as key elements of all degree programmes. The project aimed to promote the concept of virtual mobility and inspire faculty to adopt it in their programmes. A self-evaluation tool was developed for use in workshops with degree programme coordinators. This tool helps them assess their programme’s present status of internationalisation and highlight potential development areas. Each programme team can then, in consultation with the project team, devise and implement an action plan in order to achieve these objectives. The project also developed a toolbox for digital collaboration and worked with other institutions to offer an online collaborative course for teachers in the art of online collaboration. Another important issue was to create incentives for teachers to work with virtual mobility, including the use of digital badges. This session aims to discuss how virtual mobility can be mainstreamed and what types of incentives are needed as a catalyst for development.
