The OpenVM Workshop with the theme Virtual Mobility Service and Advanced Learning Technologies was organised part of the International Conference on eLearning in Central and Eastern Europe, 5-6 October 2018, Timisoara.
The OpenVM Workshop role was to inform amongst education, higher education and adult training professionals the purpose and objectives of the Open Virtual Mobility project (openVM), which is an Erasmus+ strategic partnership (2017-2020) addressing the need of creating accessible opportunities for achievement of Virtual Mobility (VM) skills to enhance the uptake of Virtual Mobility in higher education in Europe, by supporting institutions, educators and students in acquiring, assessing and recognising VM skills, i. e. key competencies needed to successfully design, implement and participate in VM actions. To achieve this, openVM applies the principles of Open Education (OE) to promote achievement, assessment and recognition of VM skills. Both VM and OE aim to enhance participation in international knowledge flows, use of digital media, improve teaching and learning by setting international benchmarks, attract and keep talents for the economy and research systems, innovate and build capacity. One of the key outcomes of the openVM project is the Virtual Mobility Learning Hub for achievement, assessment and recognition of VM skills as a central reference point for higher education in Europe.
