Going Virtual


Our goal is to enhance capacities of academics and students in virtual learning and teaching by providing an online community platform that welcomes international educators and fosters exchange.

Our Mission

The pandemic situation and increased demand for flexibility make higher education institutions offer their curriculum largely online and in blended formats. While huge digital leaps have been taken, the current challenge is to ensure that teachers and students adapt and utilise techniques and tools in pedagogically meaningful and effective ways. 

Our platform and interactive community encourages a high quality of virtual learning and teaching. We aspire to make this space engaging, inclusive, and safe for all participants.

We want to provide a place to “shop” for specific ideas, expertise, and inspirations on the website. Our interactive community gives room for networking, competence development and learning community discussions.
