  3. 3. Project objectives: 1. Enhance the uptake of Open Virtual Mobility by improving VM skills of educators and students. 2. Create a European OpenVM Learning Hub for achievement, assessment and recognition of VM skills. 3. Develop a set of innovative tools and methods to enhance achievement, assessment and recognition of VM skills.
  4. 4. What are we working on?
  5. 5. What is virtual mobility? Virtual mobility creates accessible, flexible, scalable and cost- effective solutions for all types of curricula, especially in collaborative curricula. (…) Essential elements (of VM) are: • an institutional agreement • a course catalogue with pre-assessed and recognised online courses or learning activities • a student application form • a learning agreement • transcript of records Ubachs, G., & Henderikx, P. (2018). EADTU Mobility Matrix, (pp. 26). Maastricht, NL: EADTU.
  6. 6. How does VM work in practice? Ubachs, G., & Henderikx, P. (2018). EADTU Mobility Matrix, (pp. 26). Maastricht, NL: EADTU.
  7. 7. Opening virtual mobility Different forms of Virtual Mobility on a continuum from formalised to informal VM:
  8. 8. • Scalability. Different forms of VM can engage more students as there are less barriers for (virtual) mobility. • Flexibility. Informal VM can be applied in a wider variety of contexts and can enhance the uptake of formal VM. • Collaboration. Informal VM fosters collaborative learning spaces and communities of learning. Benefits of opening virtual mobility:

  11. 11. Open Virtual Mobility Learning Hub comprises: VM Skills - a description of virtual mobility skills including alignment to existing competency frameworks in a competency directory (O3); this includes VM e-assessment - different forms of digital self-/assessment including digital evidence (such as testimonials, digital assets, e- portfolios, crowd evidencing) applied as elements of open credentials and supporting open, evidence-based assessment (O4); VM Open Credentials - digital recognition of VM skills based on current forms of open digital credentials such as Open Badges and Blockcerts (O5); VM Learning - User Generated Content, Open Educational Resources and other forms of Open Content to support learning about VM and developing VM Skills (O6); this includes also the VM Activities - Open Learning Activities including learning in and through MOOCs, peer-to- peer activities, virtual/blended collaborations (O6); VM Market / Connections - finding cooperation partners for VM activities supported by such tools as the Matching Tool including matching for collaboration of groups (O3);

  15. 15. Your perspective: • If you wanted to run a virtual mobility program/activity involving students/teachers what would you need from an OpenVM Learning Hub? • What are the key issues when developing/running a virtual mobility and which should we consider in designing the Learning Hub?
