Knowledge Sharing Session on Virtual Mobility Programming
Mar 25th, 2021


During these challenging times, virtual mobility programming has emerged as an important innovation for maintaining momentum in the post-secondary sector’s outbound mobility programming space. In this 60-minute knowledge sharing session, three colleges will present their Innovation Fund project, which focus on Virtual Mobility. This knowledge sharing session is intended to facilitate the exchange of ideas, lessons learned, key findings, etc., among institutions working on similar projects and/or in the virtual mobility sphere. The session will encourage linkages and collaboration across Canadian post-secondary institutions and contribute to the sharing of information about best practices and strong evidence-based approaches used across the sector.
