EduVEnture Cologne is now in its second year and once again was successful in securing funding from the DAAD, the German Academic Exchange Service, as part of the IVAC-Program (International Virtual Academic Cooperation).
The program has the following 5 objectives:
Objective 1: Lecturers of German institutions of higher education and their international partners have integrated virtual collaboration formats into their courses and plan to integrate them into the curriculum.
Objective 2: Students and lecturers apply the digital and intercultural skills acquired through virtual cooperation.
Objective 3: The virtual cooperation formats enable students and instructors to gain international experiences in order to further equal opportunity.
Objective 4: The developed virtual cooperation formats are integrated into the teaching offers of the project partners by means of existing IT-services or relevant intersections.
Objective 5: Participants in international virtual collaboration formats build a network and form a community of practice.
While the International Office co-ordinated 13 projects as part of last year's EduVEnture project, this year we continue with 6 projects grouped in two IVAC-grants. The aim of IVAC is "developing and expanding international higher education partnerships and worldwide mobility by tapping digital possibilities".
Details for both 2020/2021 and 2021/2022 are available below. If you have any questions please email the project team: email@example.com
